Description
"Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut" shines a light on the beautiful world of paper art, fashion and design. From the traditional art of origami and paper cutting through to contemporary experiments in conceptual paper installations and modular folding, Paper celebrates one of the world's oldest and most widely used materials in all its visual glory, providing an analogue remedy to the digital world.
"Paper" profiles over fifty artists and designers who work with the medium, from the vast sculpted installations of Mia Pearlman and the delicate paper incisions of Noriko Ambe, to the light-hearted illustrations of Robert Ryan and the forward-thinking furniture design of Tokujin Yoshioka. Also included is an informative history of the material and its role as an art form, from the ancient process of paper manufacture in Ancient China to the most recent technological advances.
With a foreword by leading paper artist Richard Sweeney, and essays by origami expert Hatori Koshiro, "Paper: Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut" is an elegant and insightful look at the sumptuous world of paper today.
