Rosh: the three-dimensional portrait paintings of Chris Dorosz

You may have already seen several works of 3D sculptures made with materials suspended by nylon threads, such as the famous installations by American artist Michael Murphy. But I’m sure you’ve never seen anything like the work produced by Chris Dorosz.

In his series titled “Rosh”, the San Francisco, California-based artist creates figures of human faces, suspending dozens of slivers of paint, giving the impression of having been produced with brush strokes in midair. The visual effect it provides is a real treat.

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.
