The Foundling - Detail

"Patricia Piccininis sculptures are like a textbook definition of uncanny; they literally make the familiar seem strange.

Every hair, wrinkle, bulging vein and delicate eyelash on her bodies are picture perfect. They are totally bizarre et absolutely believable. They seem to move when caught in the peripeheral vision. It's an extremely unnerving thrill."


"Piccinini shows us what messing with the gene pool could look like."


"Piccinini highlights the superficiality of a culture that values beauty above all else."
