I have discovered a wonderful artist – Patricia Piccinini.
Some may know of the work of HRGiger – the original creator of the Alien creature. His work is alien and dark, frightening – yet engaging.
Patricia Piccinini also produces works that are alien and, in a way, frightening. Yet the creatures she creates do not invoke fear, they are not hideous monsters of torment and death. They tear at your heart, but in a quite different way.
Visit her web site at http://www.patriciapiccinini.net/works and prepare to be astounded.
