Art Description

Sculpture: Resin on Paper.

The Stained Paper Wheel encompasses all the hard work it takes to make even a small origami sculpture. It takes at least four days to create the finished origami wheel, not counting the many days to hand fold each modular piece beforehand. It is a work of love, with every piece placed with absolute precision to avoid losing the calculated finished structure, and to keep its strength.

It is then encased in a high quality resin to create a glass like tomb, protecting it and enhancing its colour. The ripples created by the mould add an interesting underlayer of depth. The simplicity in pattern but the complexity of composition
give it an indirect power, drawing you in and holding you in its spiral gaze.

The Stained Paper Totem is the base of the piece, holding up its stronger antagonist. The blast of bubbles surrounding the origami pillar were an overcatalisation, a violent chemical reaction that cracked and warped the resin, creating a heat that locked the moisture and paper together. The two very different pieces combined together create a beautiful contrast between still and torrent waters, and work similarly well standing alone.

The Stained Paper Wheel and Totem can be combined to become a table. Please contact me for further details.
