About

Vincent Pocsik’s sculptural works are a study of human form abstracted down to the point of its most transformative power. Flesh twists, contracts, pushes against bones and skin and sinew, giving way to transformations of the self and the body that envelops it. At the core of every human figure is the torso, and as Jean Arp noted, the torso is the part of the body that holds its true nature: removing the head from the body takes away its reasoning and only leaves the heart. It’s this primal, instinctive, core of the self and the body, both literal and figural, that Vincent Pocsik explores in this anatomically inspired series. Mixing fluid digital modeling processes, CNC milling, and then hand shaping and refining the wood forms, Pocsik prioritized intuitive core instinct rather than controlled reason to determine the shapes, character and movement within each piece. The resulting wood sculptures take on an elastic quality, embodying a fleshiness that is simultaneously fluid and solid, as the human body is. After each piece is fully formed, the wood is finished with a painterly process using dyes, bleach, rust vinegar solution and tannins. Vincent Pocsik is an American artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. He attended graduate school for architecture at Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles. Shortly after graduating, he opened a studio in downtown Los Angeles. Vincent’s work balances old and new fabrication techniques to breathe new life into materials while holding onto the richness of the past. This process is influenced by the desire to push the formal boundaries of media such as wood, glass, and metal so that each work transforms into an anatomical expression and presence of its own.
