Strong-Cuevas carves stone as well as models in wax sculpture that is then cast in bronze, stainless steel, and aluminum. Many pieces involve the human head- their planes and shapes resonate back to Egyptian and Mayan cultures.“Strong-Cuevas is a master of mass and monumentality (more particularly, the monumental scale, whatever the size of the work).
