Looks Can Be Deceiving – Marble Sculptures by Alex Seton

Alex Seton is a Sydney-based sculptor who creates life-like sculptures of clothing out of marble. To add to the realism, Seton’s sculptures are often “hung” on display. A couple are even left as puddles of clothes on the floor. My personal favorite is a jogging outfit sitting upright by itself, with no one wearing it. Alex prefers using Carrara marble for his sculptures and it’s just amazing how he can turn a cold and hard medium into a comfy-looking outfit. According to his biography, Alex uses the framework of marble carving to interrogate and displace our expectations by challenging our optical perception and subverting the tradition of the material.
