Russel Cameron is an American, self-taught artist from Brooklyn, New York, who creates sculptures that are grotesque and profound in their representations of life. With skin-like textures and shapes similar to human body parts, each creation looks deformed and unsettling, devoid of context and meaning. However, Cameron’s work encourages us to overcome revulsion to see the beauty within; with incredible attention to detail, he imbues his sculptures with emotion and the right to exist, supporting his belief that everything on Earth has intrinsic beauty and gifts worth exploring. Visit Cameron’s Instagram to watch his films of the sculptures in motion.
