Gallery: Hanging by a Thread

Buttons become an analogy for all that is great and small in Augusto Esquivel’s suspended sculptures.

“On every level, we are part of something bigger and something smaller,” says Augusto Esquivel. It’s a worldview you might expect of a veteran traveler, an anthropologist, or perhaps a theologian. But Augusto is a Miami artist, and he’s gleaned this insight from a most unexpected muse: buttons.

Learn more about Augusto and his remarkable kinetic 3-D mosaic sculptures and portraits in the August issue of Bead&Button (on newsstands starting July 5). Click through this photo gallery to discover the amazing depth, dimension, and detail that is brought to life in his work.

Enjoy!
