Marble Sculptor Creates Abstract Works Inspired by Nature
San Francisco based marble sculptor Yoko Kubrick moved to Pietrasanta, Italy in 2016 to live near the marble quarries and further develop her sculpture in marble.
Yoko’s current body of work explores organic forms and embody sensuality and connection with nature.
“My work is inspired by the landscapes my childhood in Guam, Hawaii, and California. I am particularly drawn to shapes that emerge from plant life, land formations, and water movement; the curve of a petal, the ridge of a mountain, the flow of the sea.”
Yoko is a self-taught artist who has previously worked in figurative sculpture and privately commissioned projects in bronze and sculptural jewelry in silver and gold.
She first fell in love with sculpture at the age of 11 when visiting her father’s family in Prague.
“My sculptures are the result of an intense reverence for nature, and a love of organic shapes that echo forms found in plants and water movement,”
Yoko’s work can be found at San Francisco’s DZINE Gallery and Silicon Valley’s A.Space Gallery in Menlo Park, California. She is available for privately commissioned sculpture.

At Sculpture Digest, we appreciate the crisp lines that Kubrick is able to maintain in her marble sculpture. At the same time she is able to retain the feel of natural elements with increible, smooth, senuous lines. In this complicated simplicity she is able to to show off her lines as well as the feeling of nature, and patterning within the stone.
