Hebru Brantley

Gaia (White Marble)

...

Archetypal heroes and Pop Art codes converge in Hebru Brantley’s empowering Afrofuturism.

Gaia, a personification of Mother Earth and embodiment of good fortune, belongs to a cast of instantly recognisable characters who have become synonymous with the artist’s practice.

Realised in two separate parts and accompanied by a twin edition in black, each sculpture is carved from white Statuario marble - representing the artist’s first-ever work in the medium.
