Alex Seton Carves Clothing From Marble

by Danny OldaPosted on

The work of Alex Seton pits content against material to surprising effect.  His work often appears to be light and airy – not words often associate with marble, his primary medium.  What appears to be a carelessly tossed sweater or quickly hung t-shirt is actually a deliberate and carefully crafted marble sculpture.  Even the designs in the t-shirts below are sculpted rather than printed.  These images on the t-shirts are actually inlays.  Seton meticulously carved designs from the shirts, filling them with resin to mimic screen printing.  Through hard work Seton powerfully contrasts heavy against light, hard against soft and casual against formal.
