New Mesmerizing Geometric Paper Sculptures from Matthew Shlian

New Mesmerizing Geometric Paper Sculptures from Matthew Shlian January 26 - March 2, 2017

Paper artist Matthew Shlian is well known for having a knack for paper engineering, producing precisely folded geometric works that are composed of mesmerizing tessellations. 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."

Shlian’s solo exhibition TELEMETRY, which explores the intersection between science and art has been on display for the past month at Florida Gulf Coast University and runs through March 2, 2017. You can see more of his intricately folded work on his Instagram and Facebook.
