Biography   John Philip Capello


John Philip Capello, who lives in Sag Harbor, Long Island, is a self-taught sculptor with a classical mastery of his craft and a romantic intuition.  He is a direct carver, working without sketches, who begins each piece with no preconception of what it will ultimately be, only a determination to find out "what the stone wants to say." 

He 'finds' the form within the marble after months of painstaking labor, and often it is a blend of human and animal forms, with multiple faces, on a theme from ancient mythology, history, or literature.
