Juxtapoz // Friday, August 15, 2014
Well, these are disturbing. In a good way. We came across the sculpture works of Cameron Stalheim this morning, and they are quite intense and grotesque. Cameron says of his work, " I am interested in fantasy, reality and the objectification that happens in between." Most of these pieces are made from plastics, foams, steel, and acrylic.

Cameron Stalheim is embarking on an ambitious project that aims to realize a monumental work of sculpture for his MFA graduating thesis at the Maryland Institute College of Art. He intends to create a massive, thirty-foot long merman and has enlisted adult film star Colby Keller to model for the life cast that will become the base for the sculpture. Using skin-safe silicone, a three-dimensional replica of Colby's body will be made and cast into plastic. The cast will then be transformed into a merman, lying serpentine in the middle of the gallery floor.
