Hi Sam, could you tell us a little about your background? How did you get started?

I’ve always loved sculptural realism in art. Its evolved over the years but a beautifully sculpted figure always inspires me. I got started in sculpture professionally while working on TV ads making puppets and props, from there I worked in film for a number of years. It was a great start because I learned how to mold and cast sculptures and use latex and silicones.

What are you currently working on?
I’m currently working towards several shows for next year with a bunch of new works. It’s a very busy time. At this stage I’m spending most of my time sculpting in clay as most of the works are still being modeled.

Could you talk through the creative process for one of your recently completed projects? (The Hanging Man)
The hanging man was conceived over a long period, I sculpted an early version some years before I produced the final one, but was never quite happy with it.  I couldn’t leave it alone so I ended up going back to it and producing the one that was finally exhibited. Usually I sculpt a small maquette or miniature version before doing it full scale but in this case it wound up being produced twice..four times including maquettes. The process to produce most of these works is very similar. They begin as clay sculptures built up over an armature then there molded and cast in silicone. Once the cast is cleaned up I then poke the hairs into it and add a little final colour.

What do you hope the viewer will take away from your sculptures?
I’d like to think that the viewer would feel something after viewing the work, perhaps they could even have some sort of physical experience or maybe see something that they can relate to in their own lives.

Which of your projects has been the most rewarding?
I’d have to say its always the one I’m working on at the moment.

Your techniques seem similar to movie prop making? Do you have any interest in the film industry and special effects?
I have worked in film and have always loved the process of making something to support a story. It’s a fun job. I do occasionally work with friends in film but its generally to help out.

Which artists have influenced you, what has been an inspiration?
It seems to change constantly but I usually return to renaissance artists for inspiration, I have a beautiful Bosch print I’ve been dragging from studio to studio that’s starting to look a little faded now. That whole period inspires me, there was a mystery in the work that i love. Things were primarily done for religious purposes so it gives the work a very reverential feel.

Do you have any advice for people looking to get into sculpting and the creative industry?
Drawing is always a great place to start if you’re interested in sculpture, I think if your drawing skills are good then sculpting comes quite naturally. As far as the creative industry goes I think there is always room for someone who has there own outlook on the world. It’s not always easy to get your work out there but if you’re committed and if you persist, then you’re bound to succeed.

where can people see your work?
My next major solo show is in May of next year with Karen Woodbury Gallery in Melbourne.

  17. wow this is art in it's highest honor. the detail is breath taking, i couldn't believe these weren't real ppl. the art was so sad though like almost every picture was of old / frail ppl but then again more detail is needed for such art because of the rib cage showing and the wrinkles and wow is all i got to say, WOW!

Quel rapport avec les geeks ? Absolument aucun ! C’est juste qu’en voyant les photos, je me suis dit “Wtf !!! Je dois leur montrer ça” et donc voila, c’est fait, je me sens mieux. Si vous souhaitez voir d’autres photos, je vous invite à découvrir cette interview de Sam Jinks. [...]

  31. This is absolutely incredible. It should not be considered "ugly" or "gross." All art is not beautiful, its unique. These are beautiful in their own way because people can relate to these sculptures in some sense. Keep it up man.

The link is NSFW due to some more pictures of Jinks’ sculptures that could be viewed as graphic or offensive, but if you feel as if today is the day to give your boss his/her come-uppance, then head on over to the link and leave the picture of the naked man with a fox’s head up on the screen, call your boss in and say, “You see.

  45. Thank you. This is art. Many people ask me about the definition of art, some said this was ugly and others were amazed by the realism in it and I just say, art is more than what we see. Art is what a piece makes us feel, where it brings us in memories, what cognitive addition it gives us and what addition it gives to the world around us.
    Thank you and great thanks to many artists like you from a humble viewer like myself.

    marcos, November 7th, 2009 at 4:25 pm
  47. I thought Ron Mueck as soon as I saw these. I was lucky enough to see his work at my local gallery last month, and this guy's work deals with exactly the same subjects (cradle to grave) as Mueck's. Can't take away from his talent though.

    Heather, November 7th, 2009 at 6:56 pm
  48. Wow! What detail, it looks so very real. Excellent job, it real makes one ponder on things one would tend to ignore otherwise. The most intriguing for me was the face with blank eyes and no mouth, it spoke worlds to me. I can't believe how real they all look!

    Dianly, November 13th, 2009 at 4:54 pm
  65. To me these works are all about human vulnerability – the baby, faces with closed eyes, older people – everyone is physically vulnerable and these works show that. They make me think about what is beyond the body – is there life after death? And if so, what is it like? It seems a cruel life, that slowly makes us less able to enjoy it physically, whilst we appreciate it more emotionally.

    Amy, November 13th, 2009 at 8:00 pm

  71. I see tears of blood and rays of light, Sam portrays the strengths that carry the weaknesses and manages to expose the parts of us that we hide, which in reality make us who we are. It's impossible not to respect Sam's work even if you are not mature enough to love it passionately. Sam takes you on a journey to the parts of you that you live your life denying, its a rollercoaster of realities from the physical to the emotional. This talent should be far more public in a world where the truth is not constantly hidden. Thankyou Sam, from the farthest reaches of my soul!

    Tim, November 15th, 2009 at 4:25 pm
  72. and you should try looking at porn….because this artist is not making sculptures of younger, "fresher" woman (you mean "women") for you to oogle; he is making art.

  76. …the point of this is not to portray younger, fresher women. it's to create awareness of life, in all forms, and the brevity of it. to blatantly show the parts of life that you don't want to see. i'm with sam. if you want young fresh women, watch porn or something. because that's not what this is about.

    dan, January 25th, 2010 at 3:54 am
  101. Uh. The point of art is to gape into what the artist has in his mind, as he shares his thoughts and imaginations to interpret to us.

    Surely, humanity by now is driven by the testosterone we call the male, me being one myself. But now it's out of control and we let the pervert in us lead us on to stupidity, or so it has shown in the many years we have lives as human beings.

    Seriously, though, do not let your vague ideas and urges control your mind. Albeit it is what nature has given us, it is not the place for such urges, for it is art, not a pornographic event nor a form of entertainment, except for those who entertain themselves with art browsing and such. But definitely not the place to gape at things like some horny teenager in high school.

    Thank you for your invaluable time to read my rant, now go enjoy yourselves and go back to your monkey ways. :D

  117. I could not be more impressed with this.

  118. Beautiful — I would suggest most women's breasts are asymmetric, the giveaway for me was they were too symmetric.

  127. weird

    Tyler, May 17th, 2010 at 7:31 pm
  128. Great craftsmanship, but I thought this was Ron Meuck's work, which is virtually identical. Who came first?

  130. this is truly awful. it is not art. It is the recreation of exact human form. where is the creativity? lacking very much so. Sculptures of people dying? there is enough sadness in the world. These are grotesque images, and anyone who takes pleasure in viewing them is sadistic.

  138. Good competent pieces with great technical ability. HOWEVER Ron Mueck has been doing this for years and I find his work far more moving and less gruesome. This seems a bit gratuitous whereas Mueck’s work has an incredible beauty – see esp his mother with newborn baby which is a masterpiece as is his oversized adolescent girl. All art has influences but this artist seems not to have added anything to Mueck’s achievement.

    Helen, January 26th, 2012 at 11:47 am
  139. Helen couldn’t have put it better. Jinks’ technical ability is sound but he’s not adding anything to what Mueck’s done, and with less grace.
