Nina Levy’s hyper-realist works touch the theme of family, as displayed by her recent exhibition at Metaphor Contemporary Art in Brooklyn. Family Resemblance included Toss, a sculptural installation created for the space that included a five-foot baby head, modeled after the artist’s son, being tossed between two headless parents. Husband and Son is a lifelike sculpture that includes everything but the dad’s head, suggesting the importance of the child in the new dynamic. Some photographs were also part of the exhibition – and here it is important to note that Levy does not digitally manipulate her photos to achieve the desired effect, but works with plaster pieces she creates for the narrative.
