only in the ruins will you be free    (2014, private collection)    RICHARD STONE, Fellow and Trustee of the Royal Society of Sculptors, is based in Pietrasanta, Italy and London, United Kingdom. He has an established practice in sculpture and painting, exploring notions of statelessness, collapse and transformation.    His sculptural works illustrate the continued relevance of classical materials and forms whilst in his paintings, hypnotic mark making captures depth, movement and evocations of nature. His work moves in and out of art historical movements whilst displaying its own unique contemporary viewpoints and eccentricity, resulting in works which are distinctly of his, and, our time.    His work is collected internationally and has been recently published alongside Vija Celmins, Kris Martin and Gabriel Orozco and exhibited with Matt Collishaw, Derek Jarman and Michael Raedecker.
