Biography

Venezuelan sculptor James Mathison renders the male figure with an anatomical precision. Using resin and bronze, he depicts standing nudes, individual portraits, and isolated fragments of the human body, such as outstretched forearms or clenched fists. Recalling the weathering of ancient Greeks and Roman sculptures, Mathison also manipulates the texture of his hyperrealistic works. He adds cracks, perforations, grid lines, and even text to the surfaces of his portraits, giving them the appearance of archaeological objects.
