Under The Standard at Little West 12th Street, among the plants and railroad tracks sits Lying Figure, a large-scale sculpture by Los Angeles-based artist Thomas Houseago.

Known for using materials like wood, clay, plaster, steel, and bronze, Houseago creates monumental sculptures that reveal the process of their making through unique details – the varying texture of a molding, the hidden creases within a cast – despite their imposing size and towering forms.
