Eggshell Paintings by Anca Gray

Chicago-based artist Anca Gray creates incredible artworks using hundreds of egg shells, broken down into thousands of pieces, painted delicately with layers of acrylic paint, fitted together like a giant puzzle. In some of her work she mixes other things that can usually be found in the kitchen such as tea, coffee, tissue paper or tea filters. You can view more of her artworks on Etsy.

Anca Gray states: “As I explore the life and history contained in these discarded kitchen scraps, and other bits of found objects, I allow their stories to work on my own biases of brokenness and wholeness, of vulnerability, of being and becoming. my work is a relentless search for poetry in the debris, an affirmation of life and possibility.”
