British artist, James Hopkins, molds, cuts, and places mundane objects together to create illusion in his artwork.  The skull image on the top right, entitled “Afterparty” (2007), was assembled using objects and items associated with the pleasures and excesses of adolescence. (Although some of those items are used and consumed well into adulthood.)
