One Pixel at a Time – Chris Dorosz (13 sculptures)


San Francisco-based artist Chris Dorosz must have a mad amount of patience. You can only imagine how many tedious hours it must take to create these intricate sculptures that are made up of tiny paint drops on a grid of acrylic rods. Using this style, his installations create a wicked 3D effect.

“Out of material discovery I began to regard the primacy of the paint drop, a form that takes shape not from a brush or any human-made implement or gesture, but purely from its own viscosity and the air it falls through, as analogous to the building blocks that make up the human body (DNA) or even its mimetic representation (the pixel). With this in mind I've been working towards creating a narrative of materials as the groundwork to explore changing ideas of human physicality in an age pushing towards virtual reality.”
