Great film directors make sacrifices and compromises when creating a movie. They’re eaten by their work and very often their body succumbs to the pressure. In King Cuts, Mike Leavit transforms some of the most renowned directors into satirical sculptures, combining their physical attributes with features reminiscent of their most recognizable on-screen characters.
Standing 18 inches tall at one quarter inch scale, each sculpture is carved from a single block of wood, similar to the way these auteurs might cut a take or reel.
Subjects include Kathryn Bigelow, Stanley Kubrick, Spike Lee, Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson and more.
