The work of Sam Jinks
draws on our shared fascination with the human figure, a fascination that has long pervaded the history of Western sculpture. Constructed from silicone, fibreglass, resin and often using human hair, the viewer becomes suspended in an intense moment of intimacy with the work, a moment that cannot ordinarily be achieved. This is facilitated by the fact that the artist prefers to create mostly-naked works with closed or averted eyes, causing them to be somewhat complicit in our voyeuristic scrutiny. As we stare at the figures frozen in states of vulnerability – be it babyhood, old age or quiet contemplation – we glimpse our own vulnerabilities reflected back. (via Marc Straus
