‘stasis 14’, 2006 (paint, acrylic plastic)

canadian artist chris dorosz creates intricate sculptures using a grid of acrylic rods which he covers in tiny paint drops to create 3-d images. now based in san francisco, dorosz started the paint drop body of work when thinking about the primacy of the paint drop. he explains, ‘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’. using the paint drop as a building block, dorosz explores ‘changing ideas of human physicality in an age pushing towards virtual reality’ through his art. most of the pieces are rather small sculptures exhibited on the wall, but the artist has also created larger installation works that are full size objects, like pieces of furniture.
