Sotheby's presents From Here and There
The works on display in the exhibition From Here and There are part of the artist’s grand body of work People I Saw but Never Met which to date includes more than 6,000 chemically acid-etched stainless steel miniature figures and 200 large hand-cut aluminum figures. It features figures of people seen over the past 6 years by the artist throughout his travels across the globe, however without personally meeting them. These people, seen in the UK, Australia, USA, Antarctica, Asia and Europe, sparked a sense of curiosity within the artist, who took a photograph of them from a distance. After photographing them he then created pencil drawings of the figures, later using the drawings to create a miniature from stainless steel, with photo etching process. In addition, he hand-cut large figure from aluminum.
The series People I Saw but Never Met is a unique assemblage a heterogenic group of humans, varying in ethnicity, age, culture and socioeconomic background; there are tourists, refugees, natives, and immigrants – all remain anonymous yet each meticulously examined by the artist.
The exhibition is open to view until 3 December, from Monday – Thursday, 9:00 – 17:00, Friday 9:00 – 13:00.
