sculpture, photography, sound
Jacob savours the discovery and challenge that new materials and methods offer his creativity. He sculpts marble, wood and steel, enjoys the mental imagery of conceptual sound sculpture and loves losing himself through a camera lens. He is a studied musician – improvisation his strength – and has been composing since he was 12. For him, listening is the most important thing, the act of creating is singing along with life and he approaches all creativity in the same way he would ride the ebbs of music.
In Tuscany where Mt. Altissimo’s foot hills sweep down to the plains and beaches of the Mediterranean sits Pietrasanta, a sculptors mecca and the site where Jacob has chosen for his main studios and home.
