Hyper Realism seems to be a growing area of art these days, but no work compares to the father of Hyper Realism Sculpture, Duane Hanson. Hanson’s work went beyond replicating the human form by creating vulnerable scenes of sloth and gluttony, showcasing mundane citizens chasing the American Dream.
Woodrow Nash, “I’m looking for that expression that cuts across a cultural grain.” In his pieces, Nash achieves his goal of integrating expression, complex symbolism and sophisticated aesthetics to yield striking embodiments of the human soul and sensuality creating what he calls, "African Nuveau" a trademark that's solely his own. While images are African, in general, the concept is 15th century Benin with the graceful, slender proportion and undulating lines of 18th century Art Nouveau.
