If you could recreate one of your unique fingerprints in any medium, what would you choose? 

The aptly titled series Fingerprints by artist Kevin Van Aelst showcases the Connecticut-based artist’s intricate fingerprint patterns created in different mediums. Aelst literally and figuratively leaves his mark on typical settings using unconventional mediums that also happen to be common materials used in everyday life. A giant maze of tape pulled out of a cassette outlines the patterns of the artist’s right index finger while a series of meticulously aligned strands of thread unspooled from its ball of yarn recreates an impression left by the artist’s left index finger on the ground.

Selected prints from this series can be purchased on Eye Buy Art.
