Andy Diaz Hope, Painting with Pills

Just discovered the work of San Francisco artist Andy Diaz Hope who transfers photographs onto elaborate grids of gel caplets.

Andy Diaz Hope deconstructs his own digital photographs and painstakingly reassembles the original image in a mosaic of gelatin pill capsules, each containing small portions from several original prints. As a continuation of his Morning After Portraits series, Diaz Hope has turned his lens on the hidden landscapes of drug culture—from high school hideaways to psychiatric institutions.

Some of his more recent work involving tapestries and mirrors (the pill work above spans 2004-2007) is on display now at Catharine Clark Gallery through January 1st. (via beautiful/decay)
