Hyper-realistic portrayal of a newborn baby on a giant scale, rendered in painstaking detail complete with umbilical cord.

Sculptures by the artist originate from subjects he knows, chance encounters, or found images. Themes include the ages of man and people at key moments of life, often in a state of vulnerable nakedness, but using a distortion in scale to offer a new view of the human. The work uses model-making techniques from film and television.
