Nin McQuillen's series of sculptures begin with dense, solid aluminum block and rod, found and salvaged, marked by years of weathering. His ​intimately scaled sculptures are a synthesis of line, shape and surface that evoke the harmony of standing stones and totems. The artist maintains and active studio in St Petersburg.
