Work In Progress: Paper Cut Sculpture

I have a group show coming up in March of next year at Hot Art Wet City. Recently I came to a decision about the work I want to create for this exhibition, and so I started a new paper cut sculpture.

I want to have three of these triangle sculptures for the show. The one pictured here is the second, and the first I shared previously on my blog. Each will be cut in a different pattern. I want to show these inverted but I need to figure out how to make a stand for them.

Part of my plan for these sculptures is to translate them into another more durable material using laser cutting. I’ll be digitizing the individual pieces before I finish and assemble the completed sculpture. I think this will look amazing in wood or metal.
