Hydrostone Sculptures by Daniel Arsham

In his works Daniel Arsham focuses closely on the human figure, sculpturing full bodies and discrete gestures like hands folded in prayer, hugged together, or holding a basketball. In each, the sculpture is seen in different states of decay, parts missing from the work like it has been eaten away by some threatening force. Erosion is most apparent inside the full body sculptures as entire knees, legs, and torsos are removed from the form. Like earlier work, these sculptures keep a neutral palette—the pyrite, hydro stone, selenite, and obsidian used in their construction giving each a matte gray to focus on their crumbling form.
