East-Frisian artist Ebi de Boer divides her time between the northern-most German beaches of the North Sea and Pietrasanta, where she has worked – in the city’s marble studios and bronze foundries -for more than twenty years.
The constant awe of the “structures of being” and the “beauty of senselessness and otherness,” are the main subject of her work. She assembles her art from marble found in the rivers below the quarries of Monte Altissimo and from that which washes up on shore, after an underwater sojourn.
Her poetry, which she carves onto her pieces celebrates life, in all its manifestations.

“Pietrasanta Artists & Sculptors” is an ongoing series on Art is Life, featuring the work of artists who are from, based out of, or have worked in Pietrasanta, a city on Tuscany’s northwestern coast, known as “Italy’s Little Athens” for its art scene, marble laboratories and bronze foundries.
