An Animated Journey Through Time With Courvoisier, The Toast of Paris [Video]

An Animated Journey Through Time With Courvoisier, The Toast of Paris [Video] - Davy and Kristin McGuire

We have been incredibly enamored by the body of astounding visual works through talented husband and wife duo Davy and Kristin McGuire. They have the ability to convey imaginative stories, sometimes even extremely romantic, through projection mapping animations onto large paper dioramas. The viewer is able to peer into these worlds with wonder, feeling wrapped up in these given moments as if they might be there themselves.

Inspired by the papercraft aesthetics and projection techniques that they developed for their first commission from Courvoisier, Alchimie de Courvoisier, the cognac brand invited them to create paper film sets for their new campaign. The commercial above has been shown in cinemas, and the paper rendering of the Eiffel Tower and the Parisian town house for the key visual are now on display in Courvoisier‘s own museum in Jarnac, France.

Minimal Kinetic Landscapes in Paper by Agnès Cappadoro

Minimal Kinetic Landscapes in Paper by Agnès Cappadoro

Paris based artist Agnès Cappadoro has a body of work that utilizes a hybrid quilling technique to visualize the notions of topography through pieces of art, combining photographs and sculptures, while exploring Augustin Berque’s sentence "Man is a geographic human-being." Inspired by minimalism, kinetic art and photography, she creates sculptures that mimic geometrical paintings and settings that transmit the vision and relationship between works of art and bodies. She documents impermanence and a constantly changing geography. Her work, calling for contemplation, is a long meditation where patience is simultaneously a process, a medium, a message and a goal.

February 25, 2017 – May 21, 2017

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.

It's been a little while since we have had an interview grace Strictlypaper, and I am more than thrilled to share our interview and the incredible works of none other than Bristol based paper artist Sam Pierpoint.

Sam also has an incredible range spanning advertising campaigns, magazine covers, editorials, installations, set design, product packaging and window displays. We have already had the opportunity to see some of this range through her Christmas campaign for Bristol. All in all her works are well thought out visual masterpieces, so I implore you to enjoy this look into Sam Pierpoint.

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.

Amy Genser Creates Gorgeous Underwater Reefs From Hundreds of Tiny Rolled Papers

Having a fondness for exploring her obsession with texture, pattern, and color, Connecticut based artist Amy Genser plays with paper and acrylic paints, bringing to life these beautiful organic forms through her process. Her nature inspired works transport you to the ocean, showing undulating motion along with beautiful hues of blues and greens. She uses paper as a pigment and constructs her three dimensional wall-based artworks by meticulously layering, cutting, and rolling hundreds of tiny colored of paper. These grouping then begin to emulate the beauty of coral reefs or an aerial landscape view of biological cellular processes.

Artist Creates Geometric Paper Reliefs Reminiscent of Cut Diamonds

Huntz Liu Creates Geometric Paper Reliefs Reminiscent of Cut Diamonds - Downward

Los Angeles based paper artist Huntz Liu transforms stacks of colorful layered paper in a subtractive way, where he cuts into them to reveal the different geometric paper reliefs. His work is reminiscent of the shapes found in cut diamonds. He uses simple geometric forms that are carefully placed, allowing for the material to be seen and encountered clearly. These carved compositions may be conceived as the skeleton of a structure. He’s part of a gorgeous two-person show with Michelle Benoit, titled “Dive In”, at the Muriel Guepin Gallery in New York. It opens this Friday, January 6th and runs until February 11th, so if you’re in New York, go check it out in person!

Artist Creates 4D Typography Handcrafted in Paper

Lo Siento Creates 4D Typography Handcrafted in Paper

We have all familiarized ourselves with the talented Barcelona-based design studio Lo Siento by now, through their typography and even installations. As you can see, their work covers a very wide array of areas. This project was self initiated for their promotion and I have to say is pretty well executed. They have managed to create a mesh of two letters, which results in three per piece that has the sculpted to be 3d, but taken to another level by mixing two letters with a middle letter, ultimately making these paper letters 4d as well. They mention that it is a project about the poetry of paper, and the letters once placed randomly together like above spell DNAMC, which we can safely assume means dynamic... or maybe that's just my interpretation. I mean, it is pretty dynamic typography if that is the case. What do you think?

Canon City: Iconic Buildings and Architecture Handcrafted in Paper by Hattie Newman

Canon City: Iconic Buildings and Architecture Handcrafted in Paper by Hattie Newman

Surprisingly, I can't believe I haven't had the opportunity to write about the incredible talents of internationally recognized, UK based paper artist Hattie Newman. Her work continues to leave me in shock, due to her incredible attention to detail and likeness she is able to create. Newman builds large-scale sets, and in this particular instance cityscapes, that are all entirely made of paper.

She was commissioned by the agency, Imagination to create a 3m by 3m paper city for Canon’s Expo in Paris, where they decided upon a mixture of iconic buildings and architecture styles from around the world, with The Eiffel Tower being the focal point. I love that paper sculpture, once viewed a little closer, is able to transport the audience to that world, immersing you in the elements found in each particular city. The project took about 6 weeks to complete, where it was then installed onto a bespoke plinth. Wow... just wow!
