Modern Landscape Masters : Jesus Moroles

Jesus Moroles has over 2000 installed works worldwide and is unparallelled in his field. He works in granite and primarily on large public installations but I recently saw these benches that could be reasonably installed in a residential garden or other intimate public space. They move and to me they resemble millstones that are popular for landscape and garden use in New England.

The Arthur Roger Gallery who respresents him says:

Jesús Moroles works on both a monumental and small scale in his granite sculpture. He achieves a poetic resonance of material, form and motif though working with a stone of great density, hardness and weight. Moroles combines cutting and polishing techniques with the natural presence of the stone to create works of universal stature. Moroles states, ” My work is a discussion of how man exists in nature and touches nature and uses nature. Each of my pieces has about 50 percent of its surfaces untouched and raw—those are parts of the stone that were torn. The rest of the work is smoothed and polished. The effect, which I want people to not only look at but touch, is a harmonious coexistence of the two.”

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
