Papercut Sculpture

h: 21 w: 30 d: 6 (cms).

The seaside town of Exmouth in lockdown was eerily quiet. Rules reminded us to Stay Alert. Viewed from a third-floor window, the pigeons were almost the only visible signs of movement.

Shadowbox Paper Sculpture

I used scissors, photographs and sketches to create a 3D Shadowbox from my initial studies.  As a paper-cutter I applied traditional and digital techniques to replicate images. Paper was folded and unfolded to link pattern and shape with handwritten text. 

Materials: 250gsm premium Bersan pearlescent card, silhouette paper, transparent paper, acetate.

Shadowbox Digital Print (unframed)

After photographing the completed paper sculpture, I made use of digital editing software to eliminate background.  By employing techniques similar to paper-cutting I was able to select negative and positive space around the image to create a 2D digital print.

Materials: Signed A3 Gallery-quality 230gm matt paper, FSC certified, 12-colour fade-resistant inks.


£110 (Unframed)
