What Remains (5’ wide x 4’ tall x 1” deep; 35,000+ hand cast urethane flowers)
“I am a New York based artist creating mosaic works blurring the line between photo, painting, and sculpture by creating a conversation between the hand sculpted and cast pixels and the image they come together to form.  All pieces are designed, sculpted, molded, cast in color, and applied by myself.  For “What Remains”, I sculpted each original flower, then created silicone molds of the originals, then I cast them in color.  They are not painted in any way.  I cast them in various two part liquid resins.These pieces take several months to design, sculpt, mold, and cast.  The construction process is a painstaking adventure of careful placement and gluing (super super-glue), that can take up to a month to complete.” - Kevin Champeny.
