Noted curator Ruth Newman stated, “The daughter of a Sicilian stone carver, Gennaro’s father has been a potent creative influence in her life. As a second generation carver, Gennaro bears witness to a unique cultural history that she has reshaped and made her own.” “The sculptures I create arise from my dreams or day-dreams. These images are I believe harvested from the subconscious. It is a method of realization that surprises and delights me while generously nurturing my work.” Transformed animals, symbols, memento mori, mythology and familial memories inform the essence of Gennaro’s sculptures.
