Art Description

Sculpture: Paper mache on Paper.

This contemporary, modular, direct paper sculptureis part of my bird-life themed series."Phoenix" is inspired by the dynamic line and form of the mythological bird that re-news it's own life. After burning, the Phoenix rises again, born out of it's own ashes from an egg. This paper sculpture is constructed only of hand cut,hand folded, archival color, inkjet paper modules and Ph neutral glue. There are approximately 3000 triangular double-pocket, double point modules ofpaper linked together. This is an ancient Chinese paper folding technique called "Zhe Zhi." Thearchitecture of folded, linked and glued paperunits creates a very strong and durable sculpture medium which permits direct paper sculpting. The science of topology dictates the slope and curveof the surface by the number of points linked in a circumference. Archival paper is acid free,colorstable, and generally used as legal substrate for documentation and suitable to last a minimum of 100 years.
