The Ultra-Realistic Sculptures by Marc Sijan
Marc Sijan, a Milwaukee artist, has carefully studied and modeled the human form for more then twenty years. Since his days as an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, he has become completely immersed in the human form as a subject. After earning his bachelor’s degree in art, he returned to school to earn his master’s degree and received a heavy dose of scientific courses in anatomy and biology in the process – hence the inspiration for the life like artistic forms.
The opportunities we have in this life to closely examine the intricacies of the human body are rare. Many of us are taught “ not to stare” for the fear the object of our gaze may hit us with a pocket book or yell for the closest police officer. But the latest exhibition at the Delaware Art Museum, The Ultra-Realistic Sculptures by Marc Sijan gives viewers a recrimination-free opportunity to stare with abandon, quenching your own voyeuristic tendencies.
