The Art of Markus Leitsch

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

The sculptures of Austrian artist Markus Leitsch are much like an accidental vision seen from the corner of one’s eye on a dark, spooky night. His anatomically correct, life-size figures have such a haunting human presence, as if we expect them to do something though we have no idea what it is we want them to do. Much like the human-scale minimalist sculptures of the 1960s, we get a nagging feeling that Leitsch’s figures should be animate, especially with their perfect proportions and realistic postures. Using fur and fluids that resemble blood, the artist plays with our paranoid imaginations.
