Art imitates life

Very talented Australian (Melbourne based) artist Sam Jinks' work caught my eye with its hyper-realistic sculptures that are both beautiful and disturbing.

Working on his own art for the last 5 years, Jinks started as a TVC puppet and prop maker who finds inspiration from sculptural realism in art. His confronting work aims to make the viewer think and take away a sense of question. Of their own morality and their interpersonal being.

Jinks' work will be on display at the Karen Woodbury Gallery (4 Albert Street, Richmond VIC 3121, +61 3 9421 2500) in May 2010.
