Emil Alzamora was born in Peru in 1975 and now lives and works in Beacon, NY. I was thrilled to discover his stretched and contorted sculptures made of bronze, gypsum, and ceramic. Via his web site:

The human form is constant within my work. I am interested in exploring what it means to inhabit one, often exaggerating or distorting different aspects of the form to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story about a predicament or an occurrence. Limitation and potential are as human as flesh, yet hardly as tangible. In my works I strive to make visible this interaction.

If you like these, there’s much more via his website. (via why not? and symbiotica)
