youcanttouchtheelohim asked: 1. How long does it take on average for each piece ? I assume it's painstaking work. 2. How did you come up with the idea ?
Some of the larger pieces like “What Remains” take up to a month or longer from conception of design to the final ready to hang completed work. It is very painstaking work, I design, sculpt, mold, cast in color(none of the pieces are painted) and glue each piece individually to create the overall look.
The idea came out of a desire to blur the line between painting, photography and sculpture. I chose the mosaic idea as a vehicle to create tension and a conversation between the sculpted pixels and the image they create.
