Artist Jaime Molina works in 2, 2.5, and 3 dimensions, translating his aesthetic from large-scale paintings to sculptures, while also producing pieces that exist somewhere in-between. In this particular series, Molina has focused on bearded wooden heads, utilizing nails to form the hair of each of his subjects. Despite being placed haphazardly and with alternating sizes, the nails give the sculptures a uniform look, adding dimension to the male heads formed from found wood.
A few of the works open to showcase a center skull, intrinsic sculptures that are either left as raw wood or painted in a similar manner as his public murals. You can see more of the Denver-based artist’s sculptures and murals on his Instagram. (thnx, Laura!)
