Kevin Champeny - Unexpected Mosaics

Sweet Death, made with...
...hand cast resin...
...candy replicas
Kevin Champeny is based in New York and dedicates a staggering amount of time and energy into each piece he creates. He hand casts the items that will serve as the pixels which together with all the other pieces makes the whole picture.

For the piece below, What Remains, he explains:

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.” 

More pics after the jump. Enjoy!
