Wine Cork Portraits by Scott Gundersen
American artist Scott Gundersen collects and recycles thousands of wine corks to create these unique large scale portraits.
“Starting with a large photograph that’s transferred to a drawing, Gundersen pins each cork to the canvas, creating a correlation between the hues of the wine-stained corks and the value of light or shadow in the portrait. His latest work, Trisha, took 3,621 corks to complete, but other works have required over 9,000.”
