Single sheets of watercolour paper dextrously folded into facial profiles by Polly Verity. It’s all about the ‘curved folds’, sez she:
I tried to fold along the profile of a face, and I realized that I could tweak the paper on either side just very slightly and ease curves out to give volume and form. When I tried the same technique in watercolour paper, I suddenly had micro-control over the resulting curved forms and they became soft and sensual. So each face goes on to inform the next and they have become a sort of series.
The intricate and ingenious folded paper art of Ekaterina Lukasheva – matt and iridescent paperworks that expand and contract, encapsulating two different forms in one.
The impossibly delicate hand-painted art of UAE based artist Julia Ibbini.
Ibbini’s laser-cut, algorithmically generated paper sculptures are inspired by Islamic absract art, embroidery and meenakari enamel work – each one built up in multiple layers and meticulously coloured in brilliant shades of pink, blue, yellow, and orange.
