Paper sculpture is an important part my creative process.
I use working paper maquettes to test ideas before embedding them into ice, preferring to work directly with the paper to make and test shapes.
Paper sculptures have always been exhibited alongside ice works. As with the ice works, interplay with light is an important part of the completed composition. The addition of indian ink, collage and applied rusts add further dynamics.
Themes for paper sculpture over the years continue to gravitate back to organic structure and the impact of climate change on our environment.
In 2019 I began to explore freestanding bowl shaped structures, and the the notion of corals and organisms under the sea as vessels of pollution.
