The Hyper-Realistic Sculptures of Marc Sijan

marc-sijan

This is one of Marc Sijan’s hyperrealistic sculptures that were exhibited at the 2010 Coconut Grove Arts Festival, held in Miami, Florida.

Marc Sijan’s Superrealistic sculptures are “homages to humanity’s fascination with its own forms — a fascination which has compelled artists throughout the millennia to mirror life in virtually every medium.” Sijan’s figures are incredibly lifelike, sensuous and graceful. In fact, they are so lifelike, they seem always on the verge of movement, a mere instant away from action. The pores in the skin, the tiny hairs, and veins; even the bald spots, the blemishes, the individual shapes of the faces that make human beings so similar, yet so unique: These are the essence of what makes Marc Sijan’s work so arresting.
