These are so awesome I love. Taken from Juxtapoz Magazine from artist Lucy McRae, The Body Architect.
Bizarre, beautiful, inventive, and utterly mesmerizing is the work of Australian artist Lucy McRae ,Continuing our look at artists participating in NOVA out of Sao Paulo, we now fall deeply into the alter reality to which Lucy propels her human subjects.
Lucy McRae is an Australian artist straddling the worlds of fashion, technology and the body. As a body architect she invents and builds structures on the skin that re-shape the human silhouette.
Her provocative and often grotesquely beautiful imagery suggests a new breed; a future human archetype existing in an alternate world. Trained as a classical ballerina and architect her work inherently fascinates with the human body. She relies on instinct to evolve an extraordinary visual path that is powerful, primal – and uniquely Lucy McRae.
