Miami-based artist Augusto Esquivel realistically duplicates objects by suspending thousands of sewing buttons on mere strings. Each strand of his incredible sculptural pieces work with their adjacent string of buttons to create colorful replicas of everything, from a basic geometric cube to a stone fountain covered in flowers and spouting water.
The intensity of this work is amazing because in reality it is just a collection of colored tiles. Individually they mean nothing, but as they were each fashioned with a specific purpose and when they are in their place they are a part of beauty. Like the Church.
