Plasticine & Threads

Reading Time: 2 minutes

In a fine balance of sculpting, painting, lighting, and photography, Madrid-based artist Irma Gruenholz creates portraits and still-lifes that could easily be mistaken for 2D images found in storybooks. Gruenholz refers to her pieces as clay illustrations, and works with a variety of materials including modeling clay and plasticine to achieve different effects. Her work appears in advertisements, books, posters, and magazines around the world, and three of her portraits were selected for the Society of Illustrators 57th Exhibition in New York in 2015.
