American artist Dustin Yellin created a series of stunning glass sculptures, using acrylic, resin, and glass to bring surrealistic landscapes to life. The new pieces combine the everyday world with the extraordinary in a process the artist calls “frozen cinema.”
One piece in the series, titled Building a Rocket Under a Waterfall depicts a group of people constructing a large rocket underneath a flowing waterfall. The piece was constructed from 33 layers of laminated glass and weighs a whopping 1,400 pounds.
Another piece, Building a Time Machine in Car Mountain, shows a time machine being built directly under a junkyard.
According to the artist’s website, “Yellin primarily works through a unique form of three-dimensional photomontage, in which paint, and images clipped from various print media are embedded within laminated glass sheets to form grand allegories.”
Yellin gained public attention through drawings of human cells. He currently runs a gallery and workspace for artists called Pioneer Works that is located in Red Hook, New York.
