The Hand Stitched Sculptures Of Cyril Le Van

Art often attempts to initiate a conversation between the viewer and the viewed work, gently toying with their sense of what is real and what is merely artistic representation.

Cyril Le Van initiates this sense of wonder by printing photo quality designs onto plastic sheets which he then uses to create soft sculptures.

This juxtaposition of the hard object and soft fabric, the visual realism of the print and the obviously not very real looking nature of the sewn together object, this is Cyril's visual exploration of consumerism and why people place so much importance on material possessions, as he strips away the status symbol nature of the object and makes it merely something nice to look at.
