Harma Heikens definitely knows how to let out a few demons. Her life-sized sculptures routinely feature children covered in dirt and half naked. The children are often featured with money and food.
Heikens sends strong messages through her art, foreshadowing our future by using sculptured children. Sexual exploitation, economic abuse and advertising are all deeply embedded themes and statements that make themselves present through these disturbing artworks.
Innocence is certainly at a loss in these creepy Heiken creations. Check it out in the above gallery (and special thanks to our very own Cowbag for this awesome find)!
