Artist Rebecca Szeto gives new life to old mass-produced paintbrushes by carving and painting them into beautiful portraits of aristocratic dames seen in historical paintings. By doing this, she questions the notions of beauty and value. She also refers to the act of painting by painting on the tool itself. Aren’t they just beautiful?
