Up Close and Personal: The Ultra-Realistic Sculpture of Marc Sijan

May 17 through August 12, 2018

Milwaukee based sculptor Marc Sijan is internationally recognized for his hyper-realistic, life-sized sculptures of the human figure. Pores, veins, hair follicles, moles, and all the intricate and imperfect details of the human form are revealed in his captivating works. Often depicting everyday subject matter, from overweight beach goers to resting security guards, Sijan infuses his materials with pathos and empathy. Caught in quiet narratives, the sculptures invite surprise, followed by lengthy interaction and examination from the viewer. This exhibition features multiple full-size figures, accompanied by head and shoulder busts.
