UK-based German Julia Lohmann has some breathtaking, interesting and gruesome artwork. As quoted in The Guardian, “I like taking a material we commonly discard and making it so beautiful that the viewer is instantly attracted to it, but only later finds out what it is.” From broaches made from casts of dead baby mice to a series of lamps made from cow stomachs to stools cast in the cavity of gutted livestock, her designs are both sublime and… well… fatal. Her exhibitions and installations look to be a real treat. I can only hope someone commissions her in Seattle (yeah, right). Below are some of the shots from her website, which you should definitely check.
