Seattle-based artist Adrienne Antonson creates beautiful, intricate insect artwork using just errant strands of human hair and glue. But it’s not just any old hair that she uses to form her meticulously detailed insects, she uses only the hair of her friends and family, as well as her own. She describes this extra step as creating a much more intimate and personal bond between her work and the people that she cares deeply about in her life.
A look through a magnifying glass reveals the amazing amount of complexity and sheer work that she puts into each one of her insect creations. Some of them are true to nature, and appear as if they are about to fly off the display wall, while others are clear figments of a very active imagination. What remains.
