About Jamie


Jamie Salmon is a British born, Vancouver resident, contemporary sculptor. He specialises in photorealistic sculpture, utilizing materials such as silicone rubber, fibre glass, acrylic and human hair.

The themes of Salmons works are varied. He says “I like to use the human form as a way of exploring the nature of what we consider to be “real” and how we react when our visual perceptions of this reality are challenged. In our modern society we have become obsessed with our outward appearance, and now with modern technology we are able to alter this in almost anyway we desire. How does this outward change affect us and how we are perceived by others” “

weird

Smell says: "It’s incredible but is it art?"

Oh, that`s such a tired old argument....boring. I`m sure it`s art to the artist, and I doubt he cares what anyone else thinks, by the looks of it.

looks like John Lithgow having a painful memory

is thiis a photogragh or art

weird.............................in a good way

I always share the artist of the day with my boyfriend. When we looked this up we were both blown away. He himself couldn't believe that this was a sculpture. Beautiful work!

Your style does emulate Ron Mueck, whose work I was fortunate enough to see several years ago at The Sensation Show at Bklyn Museum of Art. Love its reality and relativity.

Ack! So real he looks deceased! Their work can indeed be creepy, but the realism and detail is amazing. I can't imagine working on one subject for so long. This takes serious patience and dedication.

Astonishing! Brilliant!

It's easy to get caught up in the realism, ala Duane Hansen, and dismiss it as very good life cast work. The thing is, the scale of his work is larger than life, so it becomes more than just the ability to duplicate skin tones and body gesture. This guy has a fantastic sculptural ability, not to mention a touch of OCD.
