Art Honors Life
Art has the capacity to provoke, soothe, inspire, delight and help us reflect on the times in which we live and the unique individuals we come to know, love and lose in its passing. FUNERIA has explored the art of memorializing those we love since 2001. Thank you for joining us in considering how art honors life—and how it will stand in for each of us when we are no longer here to speak for ourselves.

Vince King
I am motivated by a challenge. I seek to produce art that represents a concept or triggers an emotion, but also requires technical abilities. I am predominantly a reductionist. I start from a large block and work towards the finished piece.

Robin Antar, President, Realism in Stone a division of Antar Studios Inc.
My passion as a sculptor involves a technique I uncovered more than 20 years ago - the precise art of creating "virtual records" of contemporary culture — capturing common, everyday items in stone. Essentially, I replicate these items on a real life-scale, complete with meticulous detail. I achieve this absolute realism by incorporating parts of the actual object, as well as custom-made stains, paints, plastics and gold leaf. It's more than art imitating life, it's art mirroring life.

Mountainpipes: My goal with my carving kits is to give the first time carver a project that you can succeed at and be very satisfied with the results. I've seen many short attention span kids (and adults) give up when their first carving experience was too big a project for them that's why I came up with this size, stick with it for 45 minutes to 1? hour and I'm sure you'll be happy with the results and be more inclined to try a second carving. Take your time and good luck. Please contact me for any help or questions you might have. Vince Castanon
