William Newman-Wise's MFA thesis show consists of sculpture, photography, and a book.

A is face down, nude, in front of C.

C sits cross-legged on my studio chair.

BACK is written in pencil on a plywood cutout.


C stretches his arm out to A.

A holds the mirror.

W is in the reflection.


"sweat silhouette" explores the artist directing through photography and being directed through sculpture.


Slowness pervades my touch and movements through the studio and minutes walking home. Images and objects move fluidly between abstraction and representation. Focus emerges and slips away. The physical and emotional distance between two people echoes a lingering tension in my studio between myself as photographer, myself as

sculptor, myself and material, and image and object.
