Clothes carved out of marble by Alex Seton

Alex Seton is a Sydney-based artist renowned for his realistic marble sculptures.

“Seton is an artist who explores contemporary notions of nationhood, security and our transition from the analogue to the digital world through sculpture, installation and photography. Within the framework of marble carving, Seton interrogates and displaces our expectations through overturning historical and cultural constructs, challenging our optical perception and subverting the tradition of the material. One of Seton’s central concerns is the nature of monument and the way in which we consecrate objects, people and moments in time. By memoralizing everyday objects such as inflatable toys, beds, hooded jumpers and flags in stone, Seton questions the reverence of both material and subject.”
