melbourne-based artist sam jinks presented his latest sculptural piece ‘unsettled dogs’ as part of art stage singapore 2013. the artwork is strikingly realistic, reminiscent of work by ron mueck – carefully crafted from silicone, pigment, resin and hair to depict two nude bodies. each figure lies face to face in an appearance of sleep, donning the sharp-angled head of a fox and about about one-quarter life size. ‘unsettled dogs’ is a metaphor for jinks’ conviction that emotional chaos lies not far beneath contemporary society’s well-cultivated sheath of courtesy and mutual respect.
