Intricate Interlocked Geometric Cut Paper Sculptures Inspired by Science and Nature

Seeking inspiration from the beauty found in science and nature, Portland based paper artist Chrissie Hart creates astonishing sculptures comprised of several layers of paper, meticulously cut and interlocked to create these incredibly detailed and colorful works of art. Hart is a self-taught artist whose attention to detail is clearly prevalent through these designs. Her process begins by first drawing each design and then scans them into illustrator, where she then perfects each piece with what she claims to be an OCD refinement, carefully removing any unnecessary details and adding others where she deems necessary. She tells Strictlypaper, "I love the lines to be straight and mirrored perfectly. I usually prefer more lines interlacing, so if I see a different shape, I can exclude some of those lines and cut through them to create the look that I see as pleasing."

Portland Paper City 2011

Portland Paper City 2011 Logo Portland Paper City: A PAPERCRAFT INSTALLATION COLLABORATIVE INSPIRED BY THE CITY OF PORTLAND Portland Paper City - Opening 5

After a public vote in the city of Portland, OR back in March 2010, Portland Paper City won a proposal for an exhibition, with support from Art Spark to produce a showcase of abstract, figurative, and architectural representations of the City of Portland through the art of papercraft and paper sculpture.

I invite all lovers of paper to gather round and experience Portland Paper City -- a unique installation collaborative run and organized by a quite crafty collective of designers, Marisa Green, Jessie Bazata, Sean Garrison, and Rory Phillips. They have just opened their doors this past weekend and will be on display at Disjecta from Saturday, March 5, 2011 through Saturday, March 26, 2011.
