Cut Paper Cube Sculpture

I’m continuing with my close-up look at some of the recent work I created for Voices From Another Room at Hot Art Wet City.

I wanted to explore different forms with the three dimensional paper cut vessels, and I had this idea of creating a sculpture of stacked cubes. Some of the previous vessels are pieced together from multiple pieces of paper, while others are created from a single sheet. In the case of these cubes, these were each cut from a single sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ black cardstock.

I found a template on creating square boxes and used this as my guide to the structure of the box, but hand drew each one in the end. The designs were created freeform and hand cut using an xacto knife. I made six of these in all with the idea they would cluster together on a plith. Each cube is 2.5″ x 2.5″ square.

As with the flowerbust installation shared previously, I think I will continue creating more of these to build further on the idea for a future show.
