Artist Frances Goodman Nails It

This is a lovely sculpture by artist Frances Goodman from Johannesburg, South Africa.
But take a closer look those shiny little bits are actually artificial nails.

Goodman focuses primarily on women, contemporary notions of beauty and desire, and the anxieties caused by social expectations. She considers false nails, the ultimate feminine accessory.
A symbol of excess, she has layered the nails to create organic shapes and body-like forms. The layers give the sculptures a sense of movement, while maintaining their fragility.
