Upon a Fold

A little peek into the world of paper artistry

perfect paper pleats... March 9, 2010

richardsweeney_2 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 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, 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!

wowsers...they truly are amazing...i wonder how long each one would take to make...and how many pieces of paper ended up in the recycling?

I know. I wish I could watch how it's done. I am truly fascinated!
