New York-based artist Maude White (previously) continues to create beautifully rendered illustrations with cut paper, creating dozens of new pieces since we explored her work this summer. U.K.-based designer Steve Wintercroft has a collection of bizarre geometrical paper masks that can be printed out (for a price) and assembled by you right at home. Partially inspired by Erik Åberg’s interlocking kinetic cube system Ghostcubes, Brasil-based origami artist Jo Nakashima created a method for building a similar object using a system of 40 paper cubes. Dreaming of getting a pet of your very own but not sure you want to deal with all of the responsibilities that come with a furry new friend? Perhaps one of these wondrous geometric paper animal sculptures will suffice until you are ready for a living, breathing animal that comes with pet deposits (for all you renters out there) and vet bills. Not to mention the responsibility of going for walks every other hour, scooping out a litter box, and making sure the water dish is always full. German-based artist, Wolfram Kampffmeyer brings animals to life in a whole new way. Kampffmeyer creates computer animated 3D sculptures that are too cool looking to be made of paper, but they really are. Paired with the pretty pastel paper Kampffmeyer uses, these animals appear to be from another planet–but in a good way. In fact, this might be the first paper object I have ever wanted to cuddle! Eric Standley’s artwork is truly cutting edge, with layer upon layer of intricately laser-cut sheets of paper forming a rich, colorful, and detailed whole. He is a pioneer in the techniques used to create his art. His vector drawings were initially inspired by the geometry in Gothic and Islamic architectural ornamentation. The pieces are painstakingly assembled from laser-cut paper layered to create elaborate three-dimensional works of art. Often these works are created using well over 100 layers of paper and can take months of planning and drawing. The result is so intricately detailed that the pieces must be viewed from multiple perspectives to be fully appreciated. Odani Motohiko is a well known contemporary Japanese sculptor whose lighter-than-air imaginative works can leave the viewer breathless. His unique style has won this artist acclaim both in Japan and abroad, and in 2003 he was selected as one of the artists to represent Japan at the Venice Biennale. ‘Right now I have this strong Futurist interest in how to capture the concepts of movement and transformation, dynamism and speed in sculpture,’ Odani said. ‘I can really relate to Boccioni’s assertion that modern sculpture was a ‘dead art’, and his concern with regenerating it. Although in my case we’re talking about taking a fresh look at the history of sculpture in Japan. I’m not sure if calling it slow to evolve is quite the right phrase, but I do sense a lack of historical continuity and attempts at comparison. I’d like to head somewhere different to that, in the shortest possible distance.’ Source.
