The work by Brooklyn artist Nina Levy truly makes you do a double take. At first glance, Nina’s work looks like uninteresting portrait photography, but then you notice that some of the subject's limbs are, well, a little large...

Nina creates sculptures--either whole figures or just limbs--that are incredibly lifelike. Now juxtapose an oversized arm with a child model, or a woman with a giant fist, and you have a piece of art that truly provokes thought.
