Artist Will Ryman creates these massive sculptures using scaled down materials. The exhibiton, "Anyone and No One" currently at the Paul Kasmin Gallery, tests the limits of scale and complexity.
"Bird" is a two ton sculpture made out of 1,500 bent nails, "Everyman" is a giant human figure comprised of 30,000 bottle caps, and the final installation is a labryinth of stacked paintbrushes. Pretty staggering.
