The photographic work of Dan Mountford is visually stunning. Dan creates double exposure portraits of characters. I think if you’re the sort of person who has ever wanted to know what is going on inside, another persons head he allows you to discover glimpse it.
So there has not been too much time for any sort of making lately, but I cobbled this together recently, it is pretty simple put goes with just about everything. There is nothing like a bit of a quick crafting to perk you up when your having a bad day.
On a recent trip to Reverse Garbage, I managed to score these lovely pieces of wallpaper. Now I hope you realise that I was being a bit tongue in cheek, they are so garish and yet they are also great. I think I will cut them up into bits stitch into some part to make a series of artworks but I thought they did deserve to be seen in all their glory before they are repurposed.
Peter Callensen’s paper works provide an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality.
“On being asked why paper “It is probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying information today. This is why we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper. By taking away all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white A4 paper sheet for my creations, I feel I have found a material that we are all able to relate to, and at the same time the A4 paper sheet is neutral and open to fill with different meaning. The thin white paper gives the paper sculptures a frailty that underlines the tragic and romantic theme of my works.”
I wish I had the patience to create something so great out of paper
