Mark Jenkins spends the majority of his time sculpting humans, creating installations that disturb the senses of most. Imagine wandering up to a bike stand on the streets of your city only to find three bikes parked on top of a body. As you walk down the street you come upon a homeless man with his hood pulled over his head, but he never moves, is always there, and remains the same. What are you going to think when you see a body lying face down in the pond with group of balloons floating above his lifeless body? Mark’s sculptures push beyond normal and challenge people to redefine their environment.
The most troubling part of many of Mark’s disturbing creations is how closely they resemble real life possibilities.
