Artist Chris Hynes Creates Incredible Sculptures From Scrap Metal

The process I use to create these sculptures begins in the local junkyard. Sometimes the pieces are sketched out in advance with a preconceived notion as to what the final sculpture will become. Other times a found object will inspire me to create a sculpture based on the form or shape of the discovery itself.

My latest works have recently been revolving around critically endangered species and constitute a mixed media approach to the design that reflect a fragility to the subject matter. These sculptures juxtapose the “organic” to inorganic by transitioning the form from natural “flesh” to the cold harshness of man-made metal. ~ chris hynes
