Hyperrealistic sculptures of discarded candy wrappers by American artist Paul Rousso. His process involves using heat infusion to warm flat sheets of acrylic or styrene, which are printed on both sides, and hand-molding the sheets into a sculptural form. Rousso's work deals with elements from pop culture and focuses on the idea of "flat depth", a term he coined to describe two dimensional objects in a three dimensional way and to create the illusion of perspective on a flat surface.
My work explores the relationship between the two-dimensional politics of the printed page and the multimedia promise of future-enhanced life experiences. Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the endless oscillation of the human condition through text and imagery. As alternating replicas of our day-to-day become transformed by the inexplicable need to create, I endeavor to illuminate the imagined, effervescent edges of our all but invisible lives through the flat, two-dimensional subject matter that is all around us.
