Lisa Gralnick

Check out these stunning sculptures of mega talented artist Lisa Gralnick.  I’m particularly jazzed by her series, The Gold Standard, which features visually striking and conceptually loaded objects cast in 18k gold and plaster.  The amount of gold on each sculpture represents the market value of the object.  For example, in the sculpture of the face above, the amount of gold covering the nose correlates to the cost of a nose job.  Fascinating stuff.  More commentary to come when I see her work this spring in person.
