LIFTED a documentary film by Motion Filmworks of Bonaguro’s experiences in Pietrasanta & Carrara, Italy …..



Jyl Bonaguro is a self taught sculptor, specializing in carving Italian marble by hand. Often working spontaneously, Bonaguro’s decidedly modern approach to the ancient art of stone carving diverges from the formal academic approach, revealing the raw stone in select areas, leaving sections untouched and natural, reminiscent of fragments excavated by archaeologists.
