Lewis Hutchings

My work explores masculinity within the human body by scrutinizing male genitalia and representing phallic symbolism through sculpture.

By experimenting with scale, form and texture I have created a body of work that has a spectrum of aesthetic qualities. The sculptures have an element of satire and the work’s humour is suggestive of how the male physique has been perceived throughout time. Taking influence from Surrealism, Modernism and contemporary sculpture I intend to create a forcible array of models that engage with viewers, obtruding the audience into questioning the pieces and their relation to the male form.
