Mark Jenkins is a sculptor and installation artist whose work focuses on urban themes and often locates itself within this physical context. The artist invented his own technique of casting objects using packing tape and plastic wrap. With it he has created a range of characters from clear ducks, dogs and babies to clothed hyper-realistic anthropomorphic beings molded from his own body and that of his partner Sandra Fernandez. He describes his work as “absurdist” and with the idea to “to create situations that turn the world into a stage”. He currently lives in Washington, DC.
