Alexander Seton: Carved Illusions

Alexander Seton is a Sydney based artist who creates carved marble sculptures that play on optical illusion and the perception of surface. Seton's work uses the tension and often contradiction between the traditional laborious skill of carving and use of contemporary subject matter and concerns. "I use these everyday objects as a place for story telling because they’re related and accessible." he says, "They’re common enough to have them even removed once, in terms of context, but still throw up questions of what am I looking at?"
