“Stooped People” in Hyper-real Sculptures of Evan Penny

Evan Penny makes the kind of sculpture that is so realistic, so detailed, and so obviously a display of skill that it literally stops people in their tracks. But this alone isn’t why the artist’s work grabs the viewer.

Born in South Africa in 1953 to missionary parents, Penny became a naturalized Canadian and studied fine art at the Alberta College of Art in Canada where he concentrated on the figure and steel constructivist sculpture. It was not until after supportive encouragement from the artist Anthony Caro that he had the confidence to commit to the unpopular territory of figurative sculpture.

Penny began working as a guest lecturer and taught sculpture at various universities in Canada and the United States from 1982 until 1999. In addition he worked making prosthetic, with the most up to date technology in the film industry, for films such as Adrian Lyne’s “Jacob’s Ladder” (1989), Oliver Stone’s “JFK” (1991), Natural Born Killers (1994) and “Nixon” (1995). He also worked on David Cronenberg’s “Existenz” (1999) . Penny’s first solo exhibition in 1981 met with mixed reviews. His early sculptural works from 1979 to 1999 were commonly labeled as monstrous due to their unforgiving adherence to reality.

6 Ultra New Super Tall Under Construction Towers

Today, skyscrapers are an increasingly common sight where land is expensive, as in the centers of big cities, because they provide such a high ratio of rent able floor space per unit area of land. They are built not just for economy of space; like temples and palaces of the past, skyscrapers are considered symbols of a city’s economic power. Not only do they define the skyline, they help to define the city’s identity. Here are 6 examples of amazing ultra new super tall under construction towers.

Great White Shark Hunting: Fearsome Predator in Action

Predation is one of the most fundamental and fascinating interactions in nature, and sharks are some of the fiercest predators on Earth. However, their hunting pattern is difficult to study because it is rarely observed in the wild. As a result, shark predatory behavior has remained much of a mystery. Researchers have found that sharks hunt in a highly focused fashion, just like serial criminals.

In an awesome display of power and acrobatic prowess, white sharks attack prey with a sudden vertical rush that propels them out of the water. “They hunt solitary juvenile Cape fur seals when light levels are low, stalking them from near the ocean floor to remain undetected, before launching a vertical attack,” Hammerschlag said. “This strategy maximizes a shark’s chances of catching a seal unaware thus initiating a fatal first strike. Stealth and ambush are key elements in the white shark’s predatory strategy.” This hunting strategy of great white sharks can best be observed in these fascinating photographs and artistic CG images of these marvelous animals.
