Jim Racchi, Key Wester and founder of ART IN THE PARK (now called Sculpture Key West), studied sculpture in Cleveland and Italy. His work ranges from the more traditional, hinting at his classical education of stone carving in Florence, to playful and even abstract. He writes, “I draw with steel, forming the figure directly in space.” Solares Hill writes “he uses a line of steel as if he were sketching a figure with a pencil, adding more lines until the contour of the figure is fleshed out and wonderfully familiar.”
