THE MONSTER IN ME



PATRICIA PICCININI

Born in 1965, expanding the hyperrealist tradition in sculpture, the australian artist Patricia Piccinini uses an array of materials, including silicone, leather, and human hair to form beings that might result from genetic science. Beasties with soulful brown eyes and long ears, scales, or webbed extremities, appear simultaneously appealing and grotesque.

In the mid-2000s, Piccinini began imagining machines that develop animalistic behaviors, becoming autonomous organisms. She created futuristic sculptures made from fiberglass, steel, and leather, that resemble mutated motor scooters and racing helmets. Both impressive and disconcerting, these sculptures intimate that humans can manipulate but not control life or evolution.

All of Piccinini's works begin with her drawings, which she and a small team of technicians translate into three-dimensional objects. They use traditional processes (such as hand-sculpted plasticine models), as well as computer-based techniques like CNC milling and 3D-printing to test ideas before fabricating finished works.

I DON'T SEE ANY MONSTERS HERE



YOSHIMASA TSUCHIYA

carves delicately rendered animals and mythological figures from wood. Often painted in shades of white, cream, and gray, his elegant works are inspired by his dreams and Japanese folklore. Yoshimasa earned a degree in woodcarving at Tokyo University of the Arts. Through his studies in sculpture and the preservation of ancient Buddhist statuary, he developed his signature style and motifs. Yoshimasa has created a veritable menagerie of adorable animals, such as cats, giraffes, and lambs. Symbolic creatures, like mermaids and phoenixes, are also frequent themes. Yoshimasa completes his works by carefully embedding glass eyes in the sculptures, which lend his pieces an additional sparkle of life and color.
