Jamie Salmon is well-known for his sculptures with unparalleled realism, but now he’s taking those skills and putting a narrative spin on them.

With his latest piece, entitled Wreckage, Salmon has sculpted an African American woman standing amidst broken house debris with a shattered picture frame in her hand. The remorseful expression on the sculpture’s face suggests the lady regrets that a domestic altercation took place. Viewers are left wondering who the people in the picture frame are. Is it a picture of the woman when she was younger with her son? Is it a picture of her two children? Omitting this information adds an air of mystery to Wreckage, which only makes the sculpture that much more thought-provoking.

There’s a image of Jamie Salmon standing beside Wreckage, displaying just how large his new sculpture really is.
