Exhibited April through June 2013 at Mike Page Style Lab in San Francisco
These wall sculptures are made out of paper—Bristol board, frosted paper and mounting board—which I scored, folded, and assembled. The show played with motifs inspired by traditional architectural ornament. Flourishes and acanthus leaves are exaggerated, cross-bred, and made cartoonish and intense. My Artist’s Statement is here.
Because I have been asked: I corrected the colors and adjusted the contrast of these images in Photoshop, but the forms themselves are not re-touched. This is what they really look like.
