Can sculpture ever have a soul?
An exhibition exploring materials, scale and consciousness in the representation of the human form by artists Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark, Aron Demetz, Carole A Feuerman, Sean Henry, Jonty Hurwitz, Warren King, Tom Price and Recycle Group. Together they cause us to question, how can the soul ever be captured through the medium of sculpture?
Each artist has not only interpreted his or her model literally but has gone further to capture an invisible quality that fills the figure: from Sean Henry’s sculptures where every millimetre of his subject has been explored in minute detail to bring an exaggerated feeling of realism, to Recycle Group’s use of Augmented Reality, where viewers can hover their app in front of the works to see them come alive. The varying use of materials in modern sculpture is reflected here, with works in bronze, wood (natural and burnt), ceramic, resin, coal, cardboard, and even 3D printing by Rayvenn Sheleigha D’Clark and a microscopic work by Jonty Hurwitz – the smallest Nano sculpture ever created, invisible to the naked eye, which is represented here photographically.
