Paper Sculptures

The following works (created by Year 9 students of Strathmore Secondary College) were based on the challenge of using paper as a construction medium but without the usual methods of joining – glue, staples, blue tack  and sticky tape.

All joints were naturally constructed using slots, folds, interlocking or balancing. The artistic effects are created using a variety relationships between forms, shapes, angles and simulated textures created with folds. cuts etc.

The variations in artistic qualities created and the interesting construction methods employed provides its own artistic validation.

  2. Everybody want to take the classics and make a buck. It is called debasing our cultural heritage. I loved these paper works though. Thanks
