“……an origami paper boat is folded on the river bank, then sailed away……”
Over two days in early November, German artist Frank Bölter staged two touching performances of World’s End . The performances, in which the public helped Frank fold and launch a paper boat, before he sailed away in it, grabbed the imagination of London and the rest of the world where it was picked up by the media from Canada to China.
Peter Callesen paper works have been based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality. He find this materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form almost a magic process – or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping.
He found the A4 sheet of paper interesting to work with, because it is probably the most common and consumed media and format for carrying information today, and in that sense it is something very loaded. This means that we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper. By removing all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white 80gsm A4 paper as a base for his creations, he feel that he have found a material which we all are able to relate to, and at the same time is non-loaded and neutral and therefore easier to fill with different meanings. The thin white paper also gives the paper sculptures a fragility which underlines the tragic and romantic theme of the works.
American artist Sandhi Schimmel has mastered the art of transforming trash to treasure in her unique mosaics made of paper waste. Gold’s exquisite work includes paper waste from: menus, junk mail, greetings cards, advertising brochures, and much more. She sculpts various papers, images and text, to form portraits unlike any you have ever seen! Her purpose as an artist is to create unique, amazing portraits while helping the environment by re-using commonly wasted products. Schimmel used tax forms and political junk mail to create this stunning masterpiece shown below! Her collection includes many other amazing recycled art pieces, each unique and exquisite. All of her work is not only truly amazing but 100% eco-friendly!
The artist makes incredible portraits by recycling paper, canvas, frames and brings acid-free, water-based and non-toxic adhesives and lacquers to use. She creates the portraits by reusing the same images that arrive via mail by cutting them in a way that a completely new and interesting artwork can be formed. If you wish to see her extraordinary artworks, then they are on display at galleries in several cities in North America. Schimmel Gold is also featured in the recently released 2010 edition of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! annual book, “Seeing Is Believing.”
