Dust paintings by Allison Cortson

19 Mar

 

 

 

These paintings of people were actually made using dust collected from their homes.

 

Artist Allison Cortson empties the vacuum cleaner bags of her subjects and uses the collected dust to her unusual works.

 

She spends weeks painstakingly creating the detail in the images by spraying glue onto the canvas and sprinkling it with the dust.
