Haunting sculptures are on display at a Weston-super-Mare art gallery this week.
LT Gallery, in Orchard Street, is showcasing works by Mari Em, who creates human sculptures.
The exhibition is called Ripped Art, and is available to view until Tuesday.
Mari said: “The sculptures I make convey an image of violence and menace.
“On the other hand they show sadness, vulnerability, presence of living death, burnt out and corrupted.
“My work is based on feelings – not to do with the objects themselves.
“I am attempting to create sculptures which have a psychological truth, rather than physical bodies as an end result.”
Mari does not plan what she is going to make before she starts, and often completes the work in just a few hours or a day.
Ripped Apart is available to view on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 4pm, and Thursdays from noon to 7pm.
