Adrienne Antonson Makes Insects Out of Human Hair

1 comment

Seattle-based artist Adrienne Antonson creates realistic looking insects using only human hair and glue.

On the question of why she chose hair as her sculpting medium, the she explains: ”As an artist with a deep interest in sustainable and self-supporting systems, human hair seems the most immediate and true material. I find the historical implications and various uses of human hair fascinating. I am also intrigued with the attraction/repulsion response the material evokes. It is sentimental, challenging and honest.”
