Sculptures made from Dripped Paint

Sculpture by Chris Dorosz (4)

If you walk around Chris Dorosz‘s art installations it will appear like his work is abstract, however, at a specific angle, you are able to see human figures formed by acrylic paint drips on plastic rods.

Notes from the artist’s statement:

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.
