Artist creates life-like ‘paintings’ with fabric

A British artist has created a range of paintings and installations from nothing more but a folded length of tulle.

Benjamin Shine creates his textured works by ironing and then layering a single piece of the mesh-like fabric, which gives the impression of depth and tone.

The artist said: “The technique aims to utilize the translucent qualities of the tulle fabric to generate various gradients, tones and textures.”

Shine has incorporated hands and faces into his work, which includes a gallery of celebrity likenesses, such as Elizabeth Taylor and Diana, Princess of Wales.

Take a look at Shine’s gallery here and tell us what you think of these extraordinary works of art.
