The Artwork of Nicholas Dwyer

Simia Sapiens


I am sculpting this piece out of sulfur based clay at school. It is ongoing and it is “evolving” along in a bumpy but satisfying journey.

I would have to cast this clay to make a replica, instead of fire this because of its material qualities.

You may have noticed a man-ape like likeness. What is the future of man, what about primates? What about the past?

I want to explore the portrait  of something that can be both man and animal. Because we are one and the same.
