Ben Jackel

Violence, combat, safety, heroism, duty and physicality are all brought together in this sculptor’s works of immaculate craftsmanship and taste. The capacity for brutality that humanity is capable of informs Jackel’s work, as much as the poignancy of our vulnerability, create a discourse between the pragmatic realities of this world and out own sense of mortality within it. The dichotomy between the aesthetic and the intent of weapons and tools has led his work to questions regarding the context of viewing and the nature of ourselves as a species.
