Matthew Levin moved to Los Angeles in 2008 to work as a digital sculptor. A year later, he happened upon a box of super sculpey and a love affair began. Since then, his work has been shown on TV’s “NCIS”, displayed in numerous galleries, and commissioned by Guillermo del Toro, among others. Sculptural explorations into moments of transformation, mutation, growth, evolution, his work attempts to shine a light on the grace within the grotesque. It’s easy to love something pretty. We’re capable of much more than that.
“Mr Levin’s portraiture is both quirky and mesmerizing. Each of his little sculptural sketches becomes a three-dimensional snapshot of the bizarre. Just as the eyes in a classical portrait are meant to ‘follow’ you through the room, so will these disquieting Homunculi.”
- Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy)
