Daniele Del Nero - After Effects A series of architectural scale models constructed with black paper and covered with flour and a layer of mould to create the effect of old abandoned buildings. 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. Genoa-Zug Artist's Residence, Zug August 2012. installation views, Interview: Jeff Nishinaka - Relief Paper Sculpture Artist Los Angeles native Jeff Nishinaka is a relief paper sculpture artist who has a stunning array of work that needless to say can blow anyone away.

Jeff Nishinaka :: paper sculpture La Restauradora: REJILLA ENCOLADA. Hola a todos...mientras desayuno y antes de ir a votar aprovecho para contarles uno de los últimos trabajos del taller La Restauradora, que hacemos de vez en cuando y que también enseñamos en las clases como pueden ver en el artículo de "Más mecedoras". Se trata de la reposición de la rejilla de un asiento y un respaldo de una mecedora Thonet, pero en este caso la rejilla viene en planchas prefabricadas y va encolada. El tipo de rejilla que lleva un asiento determina su antigüedad. Las de rejilla cosida normalmente son piezas de principios de siglo (s. XX se entiende) o más antiguas, y se reconocen por los agujeros que atraviesan el bastidor. A partir de los años 50 - 60 se comenzó a utilizar el sistema de rejillas prefabricadas que vienen en planchas y se colocan en el bastidor encoladas en un surco y sujetas con un junquillo. Para retirar la cola vieja lo mejor es usar alcohol para ablandarla, teniendo cuidado de no estropear el acabado del asiento, sobre todo si es de goma laca.

Quand le street art investit les villes en cohabitant avec la nature A quoi ressemblerait le street art s’il se mêlait à la nature ? Il est vrai que l’urbanisme et l’écologie semblent très éloignés, pourtant les villes s’appliquent de plus en plus à redonner une place de choix aux espaces verts. On vous propose donc de découvrir ces œuvres originales où le graphisme urbain cohabite avec la verdure. Souvent connoté de façon péjorative, assimilé aux dégradations, l’art du « graffiti » est avant tout celui de jouer avec les éléments environnants pour dessiner de réels chefs-d’œuvre qui attirent l’attention et l’émotion de chacun. Banksy, les pratiquants du Yarn Bombing (ou Knit Graffiti) et bien d’autres artistes, ont réalisé certaines de leurs créations en étroite communion avec la nature. Ces œuvres sont vraiment sublimes et originales, une belle façon de remettre de la couleur dans la morosité urbaine.

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! 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. 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. Naomi Bardoff

Craft DIY Projects, Patterns, How-tos, Fashion, Recipes @ - Felting, Sewing, Knitting, Crocheting, Home & More Quilling, the coiling and shaping of narrow paper strips to create a design, has been around for years — hundreds, in fact. During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper remnants trimmed during the bookmaking process, and use them to decorate religious objects as an alternative to costly gold filigree. Quilling later became a pastime of 18th and 19th century young ladies in England, who would decorate tea caddies and pieces of furniture with paper filigree. The practice crossed the Atlantic with colonists, who added quilling to candle sconces and trays as home decorations. In all of that time, the process has remained very much the same, but quilling designs and specialty supplies have definitely caught up to the 21st century. The short list of necessities includes strips of lightweight paper, glue, and a tool with which to roll the paper — that’s it! Many arts and crafts stores sell basic tools and packages of multicolor paper strips. Materials Directions Ann Martin
