Ultra-Realistic Sculpture by Marc Sijan
Delaware Art Museum
November 13, 2010 – January 16, 2011

The Delaware Art Museum presents Ultra-Realistic Sculpture by Marc Sijan, featuring 17 startlingly lifelike sculptures, on view from November 13, 2010 through January 16, 2011. Based on individuals Sijan knows well, his faces and figures capture movement and human emotion, as well as the minute details of individual appearance. Although the artist draws inspiration from the idealized anatomy of classical sculptures, such as Michelangelo’s David, his contemporary interpretation of the human form illustrates the gritty imperfections of average people.
