David Altmejd’s unsettling mixed-media sculptures subvert and mutate the figurative, while exploring our relationship to science and mythology. With works like “L,oeil” (above), he uses a robust set of materials: expanded polystyrene, epoxy dough, fiberglass, resin, synthetic hair, quartz, Sharpie and pens, gold leaf, glass paint, and much more. Throughout these forms, Altmejd creates surreal embellishments with natural and unnatural emulations.
