Sculptors Artists

American artists

Mark Jenkins is an American artist born in 1970 in Fairfax. Mark Jenkins fills the city with life-size sculptures. A real expert in scenography, he creates troubling encounters between his models and the passers-by. He seeks to question, provoke or disturb with sculptures whose attitudes and movements have an striking resemblance with that of a human being. Installed in public spaces, his punchy and unusual stagings of human clones do not fail to arouse amusement, anxiety or even shock. He consideres that the reaction of the people is an integral part of the life cycle of his pieces. He tries to create a social experiment with its alteration of reality. But what is a woman doing on the top of that building? and that man lying in a puddle, or the colored balloons floating above him? Mark Jenkins' hyperrealistic installations are spectacular in their ability to make us hesitate between fiction or reality. Mark Jenkins has installed his sculptures in big international cities such as; New York, Rome, Philadelphia, Washington DC etc.
