New Intricate Curled Paper Tapestries by Gunjan Aylawadi

New Intricate Curled Paper Tapestries by Gunjan Aylawadi - Blossom

Continuing the expansion of her craft by trying to stretch paper’s limits, Gunjan Aylawadi's curled paper weavings have become more 3d and sculptural in comparison to her past works, which were comprised of flat and ornate mosaic tapestries. Her craft involves hand cutting thousands of strips of paper which are then rolled around a thin wire to make paper strings. The strings are then glued on top of each other to create these beautiful layered textile pieces. Her inspiration for this series, entitled Blissful Mountain and Blossom, is derived from the flow and serenity of Japanese Zen Gardens. These two pieces will be featured in Long View Gallery’s newest exhibition, PAPER - Works on Paper and Works on Paper Exhibition, which will run from October 27 - November 27. The opening reception will be held tomorrow from 6:30pm - 8pm.

These three-dimensional rolled paper sculptures, created by Japanese artist Chie Hitotsuyama, are full of life and character. Their lively expressions convey the strength needed for their survival in their natural surroundings, which can sometimes be unforgiving. Within her works she uses old newspapers that have stopped serving their purpose as means of information. After carefully rolling, cutting and placing each piece meticulously, Hitotsuyama is able to breath artistic life and value through those newspapers and repurpose them into these beautiful creatures. She will be showcasing her work through an exhibition and residency at the MOAH:CEDAR in Lancaster, California until January 7, 2017.

Curled Paper Mosaics by Gunjan Aylawadi

Gunjan Aylawadi Tikrar

Gunjan Aylawadi is a uniquely astounding paper artist based in Sydney, Australia. Her technique, which is influenced by her cultural identity and the Middle Eastern architectural motif, employs the act of "curling" strips of paper to form these incredible, highly detailed illustrative pieces. Similar to quilling, curling appears to be one long strip of paper literally curled to a specific tightness and then placed to form these large textiles. Each work requires deep commitment, both physically and emotionally, and can take Gunjan up to several months to complete.
