A captivating and provoking imagery from Sam Jinks‘ lifelike sculptures. His work is currently exhibited by Sullivan + Strumpf called Personal Structures: Time, Space, Existence as a collateral event of the 55th Venice Biennale between June-November 2013.

The work of Sam Jinks sustains the briefest and often most private moments in time, exploring the complexities and range of human emotion. His works are not literal representations where realism is the sought outcome, but instead use hyper-realism as a mechanism to create an intimacy with the viewer that is impossible outside of private relationships and clinical environments. His work creates a dialogue on both a technical and emotional level through a strong sensitivity to detail. Created from silicone, fiberglass, resin, calcium carbonate and human hair these works contain a profound sense of the vulnerability and are remarkable in their striking portrayal of the human condition.
