The Startlingly Lifelike Sculptures of Patricia Piccinini

March 04, 2013

This morning we take a look at the incredible sculptures of Australian artist Patricia Piccinini. Her alien-like, mutated animal/human hybrid characters are startlingly lifelike. Fascinated with medical science and bio technology, Patricia's work encompasses sculpture, photography, video, and drawing. Her latest show at Haunch of Venison in New York highlighted her ability to examine the 'increasingly blurred boundary between the artificial and the natural as it appears in contemporary culture.'
