Sam Jinks

 photo jinks-Calcium-divide-01_zps1xbvoiy8.jpg  photo jinks-Calcium-divide-02_zpsepdv1xoi.jpg 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.

Li stands for neighborhood, and Long refers to the narrow rectilinear streets separating the buildings. This urban morphology, which is typical of Shanghai, creates narrow and intimate urban spaces. The design for SOHO Fuxing Lu, an urban quarter with restaurants, shops and offices primarily intended for young start-up companies, adopts the scale and orientation of the neighboring blocks, integrates existing historic buildings and, in this way, adds to the important urban seam in the inner city using the existing urban development structure.'

The forms I create mimic the illusion of breath by the slow expanding and contracting of contouring lines, giving movement and life to a static object. My work has become an autobiographical expression of my interests and experience in natural history and religion. Drawing from these encounters and curiosities, I manifesting my own narratives. Through the construction of gesture and comparative anatomy, my intent is to explore and preserve universal transitional states of being.
