The Headlight Series

There is a brilliance of concept, technique and execution in Brooklyn artist Stephen Shaheen‘s illuminated sculpture project The Headlight Series that shines as brightly as the bulb heads of his humanoid creations.

We all messed about with papier-mâché in childhood, but plugging the results into the mains tended to be frowned upon, at least in our school. Shaheen’s work is modelling on an evolutionary scale, using all manner of recycled paper, cotton and denim to create a pulp which he has moulded into life-sized figures whose expressiveness belies their lack of facial features.
