Snarlingly Realistic Monster Sculptures #ArtTuesday

Karen Main’s sculptures are seriously scary! Via Creators:

A balance between the bizarre and beautiful finds its meeting point in the warped sculptural world of Karen Main. Her sculptures, which often feature tangles of eyeballs and teeth, look as if the innards of some strange creature have been turned inside out and are now looking to consume whatever lies in their general proximity. So realistic are her paint and polymer clay textures, that if Main weren’t creating sculptural objects, then perhaps she would be creating special effects for body horror king David Cronenberg or Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy horror fixations.

As far as sculpting tools, Main prefers knitting needles, and uses things like shells and rocks to help achieve textures she finds in nature. She then paints everything by hand, including the eyeball irises, using acrylics.
