Corked Beauty: Scott Gundersen.

Now that the day is coming to a close, I'm ready for a glass of... vino. Perhaps I'll save my cork for Grand Rapids-based illustrator and artist Scott Gundersen to complete his 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, much like LeFebvre's clever manipulation of nature's bounty in the previous post.
