San Francisco-based artist Rebecca Szeto uses old paintbrushes to create her creative artwork. Instead of painting, she carves the ends of her used paintbrushes into refined painted renaissance ladies, and the colorful used brush hairs become the sweeping elegant fibers of their gowns.
These works play with notions of re-forming beauty and value. I use humble, end-of-life, mass-produced materials inspired by my experience as a faux finisher.
magnifique ! j’adore
