Ethafoam Baroque

Remember Nina Katchadourian? She was the artist who took self portraits, in airplane bathrooms during oversea flights to kill time, using toilet seat covers and head rests to recreate Flemish style portraits. Well, a friend recently sent me a link to Suzanne Jongmans website. She is a Dutch artist who does a similar up-styling of everyday materials, this time ethafoam sheets, to recreate historic 17th century portraits.
