Marble Sculpture by artist Alex Seton

Alex Seton is best known for his beguiling marble carving,

applying his refined craftsmanship to unexpected forms. Blankets, hoodies, inflatables and national flags are rendered in stone, invoking a somatic paradox. By infusing the rich heritage of Classical statuary with contemporary concerns, Seton gives weight to the issues we face here and now.
Alex Seton’s artwork evokes paradox – somatic, material, processual and thematic. An accomplished and prolific marble carver, Seton works with sculpture, installations, video and photography to explore notions of loss within subjects of nationhood, political and personal security, and the transition of the world into a digital sphere.

Alex Seton is honored to be included in the 2016 Kochi-Muziris Biennale in Fort Kochi, India. Curator Sudarshan Shetty says of the Biennale’s theme Forming in the pupil of an eye:

Forming in the pupil of an eye is not an image of one reality but a reflection of multiple realities and of multiple possibilities in time. It does not question notions of reality, but instead layers many. As its own process, Forming in the pupil of an eye comes from that junction of the physiological with the conceptual. It is an acknowledgement that there is something essential in the way we look at the world, that it is multiple in nature. Forming in the pupil of an eye brings that multiplicity of experience together within the space of Kochi-Muziris Biennale and perhaps to spill over into the world at large.
