About Marc


Marc Sijan’s Superrealistic sculptures are “homages to humanity’s fascination with its own forms — a fascination which has compelled artists throughout the millennia to mirror life in virtually every medium.” Sijan’s figures are incredibly lifelike, sensuous and graceful. In fact, they are so lifelike, they seem always on the verge of movement, a mere instant away from action. The pores in the skin, the tiny hairs, and veins; even the bald spots, the blemishes, the individual shapes of the faces that make human beings so similar, yet so unique: These are the essence of what makes Marc Sijan’s work so arresting.

Sijan, a Milwaukee-based artist, carries on the tradition of a very old form, but his approach is very modern. His realism recalls the work of the Greek sculptors in its bold expression of human energy and poise. But Sijan is not necessarily celebrating the ideal form. His figures are more gritty, more natural — a tribute to real people. Sijan’s work is similar to that of fellow artists Duane Hansen and John DeAndrea, who use lifelike human figures to express elements of the human condition and human relationships. But whereas his colleagues tend to express a kind of static existence, Sijan tries to capture a life force in full swing.

Sijan’s recent series of new works last year received international attention and press in Dubai, UAE, and was unilaterally voted as the most visited art exhibition in recent memory, including rare visit by Sheik Mohammad, the leader of Dubai.

Marc, I have 6 of your lip plaques and absolutely love them. I would like to collect more of them. Could you tell me where they are sold? I live in the Bay Area, 94596. Many thanks.

She has, for the moment, achieved a degree of peace. But that peace is fleeting, and you can see that it was hard fought for her. She appears to be someone who is always on the go, always in the middle of things.
There is something about the sculpture that is more than just alive. This is a moment in time and in just a second she will move and destroy the serenity of the piece forever.
