With pieces in more than 50 personal and 100 collective exhibitions, spanning museums, public institutions, as well as a commissioned statue in the Vatican public collection, Deredia’s work is highly acclaimed. And it’s no wonder: The sculptures in his “Genesis” series are wonderfully formed, with beautifully smooth curves and spheres.

Deredia describes this form as the “perfect expression of the universal globality” of today, which is fitting — his “Genesis” sculptures evoke universal, mythical imagery.
