Justine Khamara’s Sculptures Re-Imagine Photography

Australian artist Justine Khamara creates sculptural installations that reinterpret photography. Rather than laying a portrait out on a flat plane, Khamara crops and tiles the person’s likeness, incorporating it into a marble-like, spherical sculpture. The sculptures, made from resin and fiberglass in addition to the photographs, appear abstract, almost decorative, at a first glance. But upon closer inspection, the minuscule repeating faces come into focus, giving the work a new meaning on the micro level than it had when viewed from afar. Take a look at some photos of Khamara’s “now I am radiant people” series below.
