For his first time-limited sculpture, James Jean sets a ghostly figure in perpetual freefall.
First seen tumbling through flowers and clouds in an epic 2019 painting, the Descendent has become a prominent motif in James Jean's explorations of time, space and fantasy. Falling forever, yet somehow serene, the figure represents 'caught in between' feelings of all kinds – up and down, east and west, dream and reality.
Descendent - Lucid Dreamer is cast in frosted resin, painstakingly refined to achieve the perfect level of transparency. On a mirrored glass pedestal the sculpture becomes illusory – weightless above its own reflection.
