Artist Creates Three-Dimensional Monochrome Mandalas from Cut Paper

Michael Velliquette Creates Three-Dimensional Monochrome Mandalas from Cut Paper

I would like to reintroduce a very talented artist that I came across a few years back. I had the pleasure of doing an interview with him a couple of years ago and his work is nothing short of amazing! Michael Velliquette is a talented mixed media artist whose body of work spans drawing, collage, and sculpture, but he is best known for his incredibly detailed works with cut paper. These works engage the nature of matter, sensation, perception, reaction, and consciousness.

Technicolor Miniatures of Everyday Life Handcrafted in Paper

Technicolor Miniatures of Everyday Life Handcrafted in Paper - Sea Plane

LULO is a playful design and paper goods brand based in Singapore and run by Cheryl Teo. She is a visual artist and designer that works mainly with paper and tactile design. With a knack for all things quirky and handcrafted, LULO was conceived out of her desire to share a small (but crazy) part of herself with everyone. These adorably vibrant paper sculptures give you a miniaturized glimpse into aspects of everyday life, from riding the metro, to enjoying some food for lunch, or even click clacking at the keys on your laptop.

Paper Cities Enclosed in Glass by Ayumi Shibata

Paper Cities Enclosed in Glass by Ayumi Shibata January 19th - March 25th, 2017

Japanese artist Ayumi Shibata uses traditional methods of Japanese paper cutting to create miniature cities inside of glass vessels. Her chosen materials reference the delicate relationship humans have with our environment and natural forces of our world, while also relating to the Japanese translation of “paper.” In Japanese, the word for “paper” is “Kami,” which can also mean “god,” “divinity,” or “spirit.” Kami are omnipresent in the Shinto religion, and reside in the sky, ground, trees, and rocks.

Using this charged material, Shibata attempts to construct a sculptural dialogue about how we relate and respond to our natural world. Some of Shibata’s work is included in the three-person exhibition Passion Paper at Galerie Atalier Du Genie in Paris through March 25, 2017.

As stated in our interview with him, "I now work with scientists using paper engineering as a way to understand the flexible nature of micro-structures. A symbiotic relationship has developed between my collaboration with researchers and my artistic practice."

Technicolor Fragments Depict Human Figures in an Ambiguous State Between Construction and Deconstruction

Technicolor Fragements Depict Human Figures in an Ambiguous State Between Construction and Deconstruction by Derrick Adams February 24th - April 1st, 2017

Derrick Adams is a multidisciplinary New York-based artist whose work destabilizes the cultural understanding of urban and identity politics through performance, collage, sculpture and installation. His practice focuses on the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, exploring self image and forward projection. His ongoing collage series, "Deconstruction Worker," is motivated by architectural vocabulary. Influenced by the exploration of the urban dweller, Adams implements geometric constructions of human figures in an ambiguous state between construction and deconstruction. This series will be on display at the Rhona Hoffman Gallery through April 1st, 2017 in Chicago.

I have the pleasure of sharing with you a new exhibition that opened only two days ago entitled Deep Cuts: Contemporary Paper Cutting which will be on view at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire.

This exhibition showcases the works of contemporary artists who reconsider, redefine and even subvert the centuries-old practice of paper cutting. In the tradition of the craft, the art to be featured in the exhibition is impressive as well as intricate, but its subject matter has been updated for the 21st century. Addressing deeper personal or social themes, the works will touch upon complex reference points including the various cultural, economic and environmental associations imbued in the humble medium of paper.

Artist Creates Undulating Otherworldly Neon Paper Sculptures For London Exhibition

Crystal Wagner Creates Undulating Otherworldly Neon Paper Sculptures For London Exhibition

Crystal Wagner is an American paper artist whose work plays with ideas of the two and three dimensional. The techniques used in her large paper installations incorporate a use of materials that make each viewer question their understanding of texture and space. They each appear natural and otherworldly and are often found crawling across walls and floors like an alien liquid, each color bursting in their unique formations that have been bent and molded, cut into strips, or meticulously layered like feathers. She is currently in a solo exhibition entitled "Bioforms and Blooms" at the Stolen Space Gallery in London, which will be on display through February 26th, so be sure to check it out.
