Sculpture: Mosaic, Wood, Environmental, Found Objects on Wood.
The works included in Sanzone’s 'Distillery Series' began during his time spent as an Artist in Residence at the Glenfiddich Distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Inspired by the journey of wood used to make the casks, some over fifty years old, Sanzone became increasingly fascinated by the subsistence of each piece. The barrels were built from Spanish or American oak, transported to Scotland, and then filled, used, and discarded until reclaimed by the artist. The works in this series not only convey the narrative of this journey, but also act as Sanzone’s memento of a time and place. The distinct colors and shapes of each piece, united with the damp scent of whisky soaked wood, lends to a sensory experience that is the Scottish landscape from the artist’s viewpoint. Works in Sanzone’s 'Distillery Series' were commissioned for the NYC and Scotland headquarters of William Grant & Sons, Ltd. makers of Glenfiddich and private collectors of this series include Grant Gordon and Lloyd Gordon, owners of William Grant & Sons, Ltd.
