"The main quest for most human beings is a quest for Love. From Cervantes to Shakespeare there is a need to express this esoteric notion in different ways. [The] search [for love] is physical, platonic, or divine. Love is an idea which is difficult to quantify. The [work] I created is based on [an] abstract notion of Love." —Stefan Vladescu
The inspiration for Stefan Vladescu’s sculpture 'Love', as revealed by the title, is the most basic yet arguably the most complex human emotion—love. Like many of Vladescu’s works, this sculpture is based on a significant event or experience in the artist’s life.
