Jackie K. Seo’s hyper realistic figurative sculptures are painstakingly created to depict every hair, skin blemish, and spot on the figures bodies. Jackie says about her work, “ In each of my pieces I like to show a moment where we feel the need to repair something in our lives and how we deal with it.
