perfect paper pleats
Sometimes when I come across an object made from paper I wonder how? How can it be made of paper? And how was it folded so perfectly, without a kink or crease in sight? If you have ever tried making a three dimensional form from paper you would know that patience and skill are the order of the day. Which leads me to the conclusion that artist Richard Sweeney (http://www.richardsweeney.co.uk/) is both a patient and skillful man!
These are his 2010 works which he folded using wet watercolour paper. Most of these will be exhibited at the Affordable Art Fair, (http://www.victorfelixgallery.com/exhibition/exhibition.htm) Battersea Park London, 11th-14th March 2010. So if you are lucky enough to live nearby, here’s your opportunity to get up close and personal!
