Sam Jinks used to work in film and television special effects. Now he makes us remember our mortality.
Sam Jinks uses silicone, fiberglass and human hair to create his stunning sculptures. He depicts people in various stages of their life.
The first sculpture of an older woman and a child in a tight embrace commemorate the beginning and end of their life stages.
In almost every work Sam Jinks highlights human fragility. His artistic work may seem sad and undoubtedly unforgettable.
We can appreciate the meticulous detail and hard work that the artist invests into each piece, and we can be thankful for the remainder of the old and new, dead and alive.
