The first time I saw Evan's sculptures was a few years ago at the N.A.G. & I was just mesmerized! I just love his perspective of the human body. Evan Penny is a South African born, Toronto-based sculptor who was just named one of 2014's Top 10 artists to watch by Huffington Post. His compressed hyper-realistic sculptures are so detailed it makes you do a double take, stop talking, and walk in for a closer look. I really liked this interview because it really gives you a good understanding of him and his work.
“If there is anything I could hope one might experience in front of the work, it’s a moment of self-awareness a self-consciousness of one’s own physical experience, how one experiences oneself in space.” - Evan Penny
