Patricia Piccinini
Australian, b. 1965
Follow

Sierra Leone-born Australian artist Patricia Piccinini is known for her transgenic menagerie of disturbing, hyperrealistic creatures. Constructed from silicone and fiberglass, these hybrid sculptures investigate the potential rise of new and troubling developments through the advance of biotechnology and genetic manipulation, as in The Young Family (2002–03), a grotesque, wrinkly human-sow and her suckling offspring, made of silicone, acrylic, and materials like human hair and leather. Other figurative schemes include unexpected animal/human pairings, like Balasana (2009), a child with a marsupial on her back, and beast-machine hybrids that suggest animalized Vespas.
