Paper Poetry – sculpting paper into fantastic forms.

I was very struck by the work of Domitilla Biondi on show at Collect (at the Saatchi Gallery).  Naturally, being drawn to all things involving paper, I thought her work was breathtaking. Domitilla carves thick paper with a surgical blade and creates sensational, miniature bas reliefs. A shadow from the paper is cast from the cut which resembles the detail of fine porcelain.  There’s a very particular energy to the way each cut contributes to delicate and fluid shapes like no other medium.

On at Collect until Monday 6th February 2017.
