The sculptures of Monika Horčicová
Czech artist Monika Horčicová creates complex sculptures using 3D printing technology and polyester resin. The conceptual skeletal structures seem amazingly real, as if these mechanisms would actually have a functional purpose. What is most striking, in this regard, is the anatomical precision of a totally new and harmonious human-like form. Some of the works are also very dynamic and the repetitive cycles that they are based on give the impression of a wheel, for example, in a surreal interpretation of a once familiar object.
The themes approached by the artist are a metaphor for death and life, a reflection on mortality and perhaps immortality, resulting from an unceasing interest in the human body and its multiple possibilities of representation.
