Avatar Sculpture Works represents the works of Hyper- Realist sculptors Jamie Salmon and Jackie K. Seo.

Jackie K. Seo is a Korean born, self taught contemporary sculptor, living and working in Vancouver, Canada. She also started her career working as a commercial artist for the movie industry and specialises in hyper-realist sculpture.

Jackie says of her working process; "Whenever I think about life, it reminds me of that car repair ad you sometimes see in the classifieds, "scratches, dents, peeling?". Life is also never perfect, there`s always something that needs constant maintenance.

In each of my pieces I like like to show a moment where we feel the need to repair something in our lives and how we deal with it. I think the style of hyper-realism is a good way of showing the minute subtleties of the challenges of life, in a sculptural form.

I can show things like the wetness of tears in the eyes, the flushing of skin or the story that the fine lines and wrinkles of the face tell. The biggest challenge is balancing the overall feel of the piece without getting lost in the details.

My satisfaction comes when I feel that I`ve reached someone with my work and they can maybe empathize with part of it".

Héctor Zamora proposes to materialize space intervention towards a transformed perception of our environment.

Created to be passed through, the objective of this work is to encourage a dialogue between the spectator, organic form and geometry. This experience, detached from the implications of structural formalism, detonates an individual dialogue with space and stimulates poetic perception.

Volatile Topography is the latest of Zamora’s approach to funicular geometry as a tool to redefine urban space—in this case over the Oncheoncheon River Canal. His intervention consists of mesh of intersecting ropes defying gravity and flowing in the air thanks to helium balloons attached to each node. Furthermore, the volatile space, slightly modified by the wind, will create nimble variations, pleats and deformations on the mesh.

Highly elaborate, precise and touching, this installation will result in a three-dimensional drawing transformed into passable landscape.
