“I have been infatuated with ecclesiastical architecture since my early years as a Benedictine monk”
Bob Cardinale is a renaissance maker and scholar. As an artist, he has been a ceramicist, sculptor, metalsmith, professor, and was president of both the San Antonio Art Institute and the New Mexico Museum of Art.
Cardinale's work conveys not only his passion for Ecclesiastical architecture but his background as a Benedictine monk. An interplay between artistic expression and sacred devotion, Cardinale hand carves dynamic religious sculptures that capture the spirit, age and beauty of historic landmarks, whether real or imagined.
