Icelandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, going under the name Shoplifter, is a master in her medium. She uses hair of many different colors to bring a tactile landscape to life in the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia. In an interview, Shoplifter explains her fascination with this medium saying, “It started out with my fascination with humans and the things we mass produce for obscure reasons. Hair extensions are trying to beautify yourself and be unique. I noticed that layering the hair together and having it flow around created a very painterly tapestry feeling.”
