Evan Penny's work is extraordinary and very unique. He sculpts larger than life figures of himself, along with other subjects. This sculpture, titled "Old Self" was completed in 2010 and it represents what he thinks he will look like when he ages. The sculpture is made of silicone, pigment, hair, fabric, and aluminum and it stands 86 x 76 x 59 cm. I believe this piece is extremely well done because of how real it looks and the detail that Penny had put into it. His other works seem to be very similar to this. I enjoy how the sculpture looks like an accurate portrayal of what he will look like in the future. He did a great job of foreseeing his older self. Penny is a very talented sculptor because of his attention to detail.
