Lucy McRea The Body Architect

A few months back I came across the artist Lucy McRea. If you don’t already know who she is, Lucy McRea is a former ballerina who then trained as an architect; her work is a combination of the human body; often her own; and found objects, such as safety pins, Q-tips and foam which she then morphs into wonderfully strange living sculpture that she then captures in film and photography. She is most notable for her work on the cover of Robyns album “Body talk” and a spread in American Vogue where she  covers a models body in balloons that looked as if they were growing out of her body.

I immediately fell in love with her aesthetic and her use of animalistic sexualization and body deconstruction. I adore how she morphs the body into beautiful and unrecognizable  works of art that are both organic and alien.

Below are a few of my favourite works.
