Peter Gentenaar: Paper Sculpture

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. 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! Here is a link to Peter Gentenaar’s site translated into English. My interest in paper dates from the time I worked with it as a graphic artist…. Discovered via Upon a Fold. PS: I am so glad that I had an excuse to add a “ribbed groin vault” tag to the SFCB blog.

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. 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 Many of her works depict fairy-tales or folk-tales. Alice, A Mad Tea Party, Book paper, 2007 Here are a few more examples of her work.

Mia Pearlman - Cloudscapes MAELSTROM is a giant multilevel mobile, 12 feet in diameter and 11 feet high, with 6 independently rotating (360°) layers of cut paper. An upside-down whirlpool, it echoes both the East River currents and the cloud formations visible through the windows. MAELSTROM utilizes the actual internal weather system of Smack Mellon to generate its movement, air currents produced by the rotation of four ceiling fans and hot air blown by the heating system. On a deeper level, this work evokes the inevitable reminder of the nearby skyline: 9/11. Unknown forces, much bigger than us, beyond our control.

Peter Callesen - Papercut Art Learning with Miriam | Just another WordPress site Home - julie dodd 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
