The sculpture of Giorgos Megoulas contains compositions both from the field of figurative art, mainly commissions, and abstraction, the outcome of free inspiration and personal quests. These quests are particularly concerned with time, space, light and the possibilities offered for the projection of compositions, as well as the recording of movement.

In “Saxophone” the fragmented volumes of marble, which form successive levels, render schematically but clearly the musical instrument, calling on the viewer to watch the imaginary execution of a musical composition and the alternation of movement in the flow of time, while at the same time permitting the light to traverse the surfaces creating shadows and illuminations which put the materials’ texture forward.
