3W: Duane Hanson

who: Duane Hanson
what: everyday hyperrealist sculptures
why: because he made typical everyday American life humorous. Each figure has been casted from 'live' models in his studio before being placed in a gallery context. You can see everything from the varicose veins, bruises and even stitched in body hairs. The clothes are even handpicked by the artist from charity shops before being accessorised. Their beautiful, funny, dark, quirky, theatrical, shocking and so much more. If you ever get the chance to see them then do - you'll never see three dimensional realism quite like it.
