Job: 

Ryan Gander

Location: 

Venice Biennale

Materials: 

PU Resin

The brief for this project was to model the artist having fallen from his wheelchair but in the style of an action-man character. The figure was simplified and features slightly exagerated, and the wheelchair beefed up. They were modelled in wax, resin and wire and cast in resin, and carefully painted in Humbrol enamels. The final finishing touch was a pair of lazer-cut glasses, and altogether, a very convincing model! They were exhibited as part of Ryan's exhibition at the Venice Biennale.
