    CATALOGUECollecto s Edition

  • Marcus Levine, sculptor in the human physique, introduces an entirely unique approach to sculpture.

    Unveiled for the first time in London at Gallery 27, Cork Street. At times using over 200,000 nails.

    This highly skilled and multifaceted artist meticulously translates his ideas onto large white wooden

    panels. by hammering nails at varying heights and distances, creating the tone and texture. All pieces

    are done free hand without any tracing on to the board.

    Abstract in theory, yet figurative in reality, the majority of Levines nail sculptures are extraordinary

    representations of the human form. Aware of his unusual choice in material to express the human

    body, Levine explains that after some time using nails to create other, more abstract sculptures, it

    struck him the interplay between the rigid, angular nails and the soft curves of the human torso,

    would be more striking. Levines ability to capture the curvilinear nature of the human body with

    such sharp and inflexible objects is intensely represented. He creates figures which are beautifully

    muscular yet wonderfully delicate, and it is clear that the artist has an innate grasp of the human


    In a very clear move to encompass his love of non representational ideas, Levine's latest work is in

    stark contrast to his figurative sculptures. His large monumental work embraces the sense of touch

    and the abstract and a sensitive use of the materials which he utilises, such as Oak, COR-TEN,

    stainless steel, and stone. Marcus now has a following of visually impaired lovers of art and


    Light also plays an integral role in Levines work, as from morning sun to evening sun the shadows

    across the sculptures can appear as light as a pencil sketch or as dark as a charcoal.

    Marcus has appeared on BBC Look North, ITVs Calendar News, W Radio Columbia, Hello Magazine,

    to name but some of the media coverage of his work. You can watch video coverage on his youtube

    channel levineArt. With several monumental sculptures commissioned and on display, two can be

    found in Bradfords Cartwright Hall and the other at the University of Braford.

    Marcus Levine studied at Jacob Kramer Art College alongside Damien Hirst. Previous alumi include

    David Hockney and both Hirst and Hockney have been an inspiration to Levine. Since completing his

    first nail sculpture in autumn 2004, Levine believes he has perfected his technique, pushing the

    boundaries with each new work and creating increasingly dynamic interpretations of subjects

    utilising an incredibly difficult medium.

  • Hamsa


    This multicultural symbol dates back to the Persians, in

    Arabic Kamsa means hand or five and was used as a good

    luck charm to ward off the evil eye. It was later used by the

    Muslims who call it the Hand of Fatima, the Christens who

    called it the Hand of Mary and the Jews call it the Hand of

    Miram. It has been traditionally given as a wedding present

    to bring good luck to the happy couple.

    Sycamore wood, Self colour Brad nails

    wood is highly polished and is smooth to touch, you can see the brad

    nails twist, turn and undulate sympathetically along the lines of the

    carved sycamore trunk.
