Incredibly Detailed Miniature Portraits Carved Into Old Paint Brushes by Rebecca Szeto
Transforming everyday objects into something new and unexpected, artist Rebecca Szeto, uses old paintbrushes to create hand-painted carved figurines inspired by 17th-century Dutch portraiture. Via her website, "These works play with notions of re-forming beauty and value. I use humble, end-of-life, mass-produced materials inspired by my experience as a faux finisher. The paintbrush is self-referential, acting as both subject and object. It refers to the history of painting, through the medium of paint, with its own tool."
