Emotional vulnerability is both the theme and result of Australian artist Sam Jinks‘ hyper-realistic sculptural portraits. Each humanoid artwork is carefully and meticulously constructed from silicone, fiberglass, resin and calcium carbonate, and their details ripened by biological mediums like human hair, demonstrating an abundance of anatomical and physiological accuracy.
