David Meanix

David Meanix combines photography and sculpture, a technique that he calls "photosculpture." Meanix makes original three-dimensional portrait sculpture out of prepared photographic images, then re-photographs the sculpture in new surroundings. The resulting images powerfully transform image, identity, and place.

Meanix has pioneered a technique whereby he shoots "one shot per every plane of the subject, inch by inch until I've covered all of the subject I want to sculpt. Next, I print each picture to 'actual size.' Then I match and cover the original subject with paper mache photocopies of those pictures." He then uses the finished sculptures as a "mask prop," which becomes a character in a photographic tableau.
