King Cuts are sculptures I carved of 16 all time best film directors. These are 1:4 scale, each is 18 inches tall or wide, sculpted from scratch in wood and polymer clay by myself in my garage. Each is painted with acrylic and carved from 80 to 100% wood. Smaller details, faces and hands are sculpted in polymer clay blended into wood. These sculptures are available to purchase. Please contact Jonathan LeVine Gallery for all purchase inquiries.
Great film directors get cut up. They take pains with the details, story, money and sacrifices to their vision. Their body succumbs to the pressure. So Mike Leavitt carved Tarantino, Kubrick, Scorsese and more physically consumed by their work. Hitchcock, Coppola and others are cut from blocks of wood like directors cut a take or reel. There's a risk of mistakes with every slice. Directors commit to a story at every cut. Leavitt unmasks wizards behind the camera like Spielberg and David Lynch to get a taste of their own medicine. 'King Cuts' are totems of satire and devotion to the 16 best storytellers ever.
