As well as you dress whenever you’re out, we all know that you find guilty, guilty comfort in your tracksuit while at home. It’s ok, we all do. However, what if it were made of stone? The one you’re looking at is. Sydney-based artist Alex Seton is changing the way we think about art material by taking it out of context.

Marble is just for ancient statutes, right? Wrong, Seton carves from Carrara marble, adding subtle lines and styling to turn something cold and harsh into something that looks comforting and warm. Very clever.
