A - B. Su Blackwell - Book Sculptor. Since the altered book project, I've become really interested in the artform and have been researching different artists and methods of alteration.

Su Blackwell - Book Sculptor

One of my absolute favorite book sculptors I've come across is Su Blackwell. Jorinde and Jorindel, Book Pages, 2010 Blackwell's work is predominantly in altering books, though she has some interesting works made from old nightgowns and curtains. Her works take a traditionally 2D medium (usually paper) and make it 3D. Sometimes the effect is subtle, such as in her piece, The Extasie, where the two figures are fairly flat, yet by standing up out of the book and by being placed at different sections of the pages, a sense of depth is created.

Other times, she creates a true 3D sculpture using the book pages, such as in The Hazel Tree. The Extasie, Book pages, 2006 Hazel Tree (from Aschputtel), Book pages, 2010. Su Blackwell: Book-Cut Sculpture. Quilled Paper Portrait - Yulia Brodskaya. The latest quilled portrait from talented paper artist Yulia Brodskaya.

From her last piece Loves Doves to this piece, she has definitely changed the tone of colors to be less of a skin tone varient in terms of palette and more vibrant. This woman’s face bursts with swirls of color as she smokes her pipe and seems to be a perfect blend into the start of Spring. via Colossal. Rogan Brown - Paper Sculptures.

My purpose is to talk about the sense of time and destiny of the planet after the human species, through the sense of restlessness which abandoned buildings are able to communicate.

Interview With Paper Artist Fideli Sundqvist

I’m sure you all have been waiting to see our latest interview, at least I am more than pleased to share it. This young lady is from Stockholm, Sweden and currently resides there as a graphic designer and illustrator both in the form of print, product designs and of course, paper! I’m pleased to introduce the talented Fideli Sundqvist. I hope you enjoy our interview with her. Happy Wednesday! When I was 14-15 years old, I became very interested in music, I played in bands and gathered vinyl records. This is where my interest in “cutting” began. The linoleum technique reminded me a lot of paper cuts, both in craft and graphic expression.

So the last five years I have been consumed by this technique. Last spring I took my bachelor’s degree from the Art Academy in Stockholm, Konstfack, Graphic Design & Illustration.

G - L. Peter Gentenaar: Paper Sculpture. More than 100 of Peter Gentenaar’s ethereal paper sculptures were installed inside the Abbey church of Saint-Riquier in France.

Peter Gentenaar: Paper Sculpture

Gothic architecture + paper art = SWOON! I love how the curves and organic forms of the paper sculptures echo the beautiful vaulting and cluster piers of the church interior – look how the sculptures have ribbing just like the ribbed groin vaults! Gothic architecture, facilitated by the invention of the flying buttress, is characterized by the towering, luminous spaces created by the higher ceilings and huger windows that flying buttresses allowed for (compared to the engaged buttresses of Romanesque architecture). So the true lightness and airiness of the suspended paper objects reminds us how the seemingly light and airy walls are actually a monumental stone structure. Just gorgeous, and amazing photos too.
