Evan Penny: Re Figured Sculptures at the AGO

| Posted 10.15.2012 | Canada

The AGO is the last stop for Evan Penny: Re Figured. It's a solo exhibition that features over 25 of Penny's larger-than-life sculptures, each painstakingly crafted from layers of pigmented silicone, human hair, fabric and resin. Blending abstraction and figuration, Penny's hyper-realistic sculptures straddle the line between object and image, presenting the human form both as it is and as it can be when imagined through the distorting lens of photography and digital media.
