Life-Size Human Sculptures Reveal the “Inner Light” of Body and Soul #ArtTuesday
Artist and sculptor Joshua Limon uses metal to build life-size figurative pieces that are illuminated from the inside by LED strips, Via My Modern Met
Filipino artist Joshua Limon Palisoc creates figurative sculptures that not only explore the exterior of the human body but also shine a light on people’s inner life. He uses soldered metal to construct life-size pieces that are illuminated from inside by LED strips. The intentional gaps between the wires allow the radiance of the soul to peer through the body.
The series, entitled Ephemeral Vessels, was debuted in Palisoc’s first solo show at the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo Philippines. The artwork is inspired by concepts from Filipino Psychology, including loob (personality of conscience), labas (physical body, and lalim (reason). Palisoc uses the human body to capture “the artist’s state of mind and being.” While some figures are presented in dynamic poses with their arms outstretched and backs arched, others appear more calm and at peace. These all represent different spiritual states to the artist.
