Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

Patricia Piccinini

The Long Awaited, © Patricia Piccinini

Here is some strange artwork. Not sure what to make of it except its wierd. I found out about Australian artist Patricia Piccinini via Conscientious the other day. Her work involves morphing of man and animal as in the Merman like creature lying on the boy's lap in The Long Awaited. That one is a silicone, fiberglass, plywood, human hair and clothing sculpture measuring 152 x 80 x 92cm. Check out the pig like creatures in 'We Are Family' on her page too. Its cool and strange stuff from down under.
