Paper Sculpture

Ikebana paper sculpture

I’ve been exploring sculpture making for several years in addition to painting with interest to reach beyond the canvas and to develop my own style of 3 dimensional work. Instruction and guidance has been intentionally minimal so the forms can develop naturally. The paper sculptures are constructed from torn pieces of paintings and formed into small, miniature in scale (with titan presence!), that fit in the palm of hand or perch on a plinth or stack of books. The graceful lines in my sculpture designs always remind me of Ikebana, more often than my painting work. These photos are a couple views of one of the newest paper sculptures.
