Artist Kaumi Yamashita crafts intricate portraits using one unbroken thread wrapped around an intricate web of galvanized nails. Created over a series of months, the multidimensional textured quality of the material adds a soft, almost organic quality to the faces. Part of her ongoing Constellation series, these works strike both for their intricate skill as well as the reinterpretation of our most aestheticized subject matter – bringing us face to face, as it were, with ourselves again.
