The Eerie Mixed-Media Sculptures of Patricia Piccinini

February 19, 2012

Having this job, you are presented really interesting artwork that expands your mind and makes you appreciate what the creative world is producing at any given time. Rarely have I been more blown away and/or in awe in seeing the mixed-media sculptures of Australia's Patricia Piccinini. Perhaps even disturbed. In a good way. The works make you uneasy, unsure if what you are seeing is real or fantasy.

As Piccinini states about her work, "Mostly in my work I try to imagine what could be or might be, but isn't. In doing this I am often struck by how restrained my own inventions are, when compared to the truly bizarre creatures that actually do exist."
