Marek Secula's Hands Flow Together
Sculptor Mark Secula references the body in these gorgeous pieces that echo the simplified white forms of mannequins but use china, gold and wood. This work is from a set titled Interface. The hands in the image above seem to flow into each other as if they are surpassing the physical boundaries of normal hand-holding. Below expressionless faces seem to cast an empty gaze while reflecting light off the copper interior onto the wall behind. The soft, smooth forms in these works are both striking and mysterious.
