Faces meld together; severed, broken hands are fixed in gripped positions. These are sculptures by Los Angeles artist Sarah Sitkin, who crafts unsettling, occasionally grotesque works made with materials like silicone, resin, latex, plaster, and clay. It’s not that the artist is trying to shock, even if some of the imagery recalls the darker films of David Cronenberg; Sitkin just seems to have found a different way of looking at the humanity. Check out the artist’s Instagram here.
In an interview with LA Weekly, Sitkin talks about the concept about seeing the human body out of context: “I’m just a giant landscape of these fat pockets and weird wrinkles. I’m perpetually fascinated by how shitty the human design is.”
