Sculpture by Jean Jacques Porret and L'Oriano Galloni 

Artbox

It's hard to overlook L'Oriono Galloni's "Silent Soul II" when this ten-foot high female sculpture's overlooking you. The face and arms of said figure were sculpted from marble while the torso was cut from linden wood. This particular silent soul is stately without being wooden, as it were, but it's also a sensuous depiction of the female form. Italian-born Galloni's interested in representing both the body and the soul and he marries them in his unique sculpting process. The bronze figures of Chicago-based sculptor Jean-Jacques Porret, also on display here, are more abstract. But, as in the case of "Ingénue #1/8," they never entirely depart from representations of the human form in motion. Said ingénue may strike you as something of a naïve girl, in love, swaying to the rhythm of her own private thoughts. Check out Porret's drawings, also on display here, that feed into his sculptural work. Through Dec 30; 317-955-2450, www.artboxindy.com
