Auguste Garufi was born in Utica, New York. He has a studio in Brooklyn, New York, where he works daily. Auguste describes his work as an “offering”. When he is not working, he tries not to make anything and instead searches for what he does not know. “I am sharing an aligned point of entry into the universe”. Auguste chooses materials based on what is needed to balance his work. The work communicates it’s own meaning and purpose without his insistence. Auguste believes his job is to listen.
