Go to the artist's site. The realism of work is impressive. He and Ron Mueck appeal to our sense of voyeurism. Mueck's work conveys emotions and states of being that are accessible and easily related to, at least for me. I feel connected to them. Sam Jinks' figures, however, are more emotionally mysterious and leave me wondering what they are feeling and why they are there. I thinks this contributes to the eeriness of the sculptures.
