For the past decade, Dustin Yellin has been dazzling the art world with his large-scale glass sculptures, which transport collage to another dimension. These ambitious works are created through an innovative technique using the atmosphere itself as material. With a precise and painstaking process, multi-dimensional images grow from successive planes of multiple stacked panels of glass, each individually embellished with bizarre found objects and eccentric clippings from diverse sources—with references to historical events and popular culture—to create intricate, three-dimensional collages that bring to mind giant psychedelic paperweights. This elegant volume includes details of the works, which take on an abstract cinematic quality, as well as a sixteen-page acetate insert illustrating a cross section of one of the glass sculptures.
