Sculptures in Paper

1 Jun 2007

I just came across Richard Sweeney’s paper scultures exploring fractal form in a very fragile yet tangible form. They are among the most beautiful things I’ve seen in quite some time.

Fractal III by Richard Sweeney

Remarkable pieces of art, some have a very organic feel to them, others a minimalistic approach to architectural forms and others still are purely geometric. What they all have in common is that, in a pleasingly playful way, only the essense remain, something I am absolutely drawn to. Remarkable!

As much as I enjoy looking at the photos of these paper sculptures, I would love to see them up close to truly appreciate the depth and curvature of these.
