Laughing Squid has posted about this piece from NYC-based artist Andy Yoder. Incredible!
“Early One Morning” is a giant globe made out of thousands of hand painted matchsticks. Artist Andy Yoder spent two years on the sculpture, hand painting each match stick and gluing them to a frame of foam, cardboard, and plywood. As a precaution, he treated the entire sculpture with flame retardant. “Early One Morning” will be on display at the Winkleman Gallery in New York City as part of the PULSE New York Contemporary Art Fair, May 8 to 11, 2014.
