Patricia Piccinini


The exhibition HUG: Recent work by Patricia Piccinini is on view at the Frye Museum of Art in Seattle until January 2008. Continuing her hyper-realistic sculptures of customized life forms, Piccinini examines the relationships between animals, nature, science, and technology. The artist challenges the viewer to embrace the unexpected consequences found in her creations, which examine both physical and ethical responsibility while experimenting with the natural and the artificial. Piccinini received a Bachelors’ of Art from both the Australian National University and the Victorian College of the Arts and has been previously featured on DailyServing.
