Miles van Rensselaer is a New York sculptor who creates fascinating hyperrealist statues. His hand sculptures, in which blown glass flows through the fingers of a bronze hand, have become renowned. These works of art both admire and denounce the virtual era in which we live. The combination of the largely cast bronze together with the blown glass is far from simple.
