These modular direct paper sculptures are part of my Ocean Life series. Anemone, Sea Flower, Urchin, Caracol and Reveal are inspired by marine life in the Florida environment.They are constructed only of hand cut, hand folded, archival color inkjet paper modules and Ph Neutral glue. Caracol is mounted on a resin base. There are approximately 3000 or more triangular double-pocket, double-point modules of paper linked together.This is an ancient Chinese paper folding technique called Zhe Zhi. The architecture of folded, linked and glued paper units create a very strong and durable sculpture medium which permits direct paper sculpting. The science of topology dictates the slope and curve of the surface by the number of points linked in a level circumference. Archival paper is acid-free, color-stable. and often used as legal substrate for documentation and is suitable to last a minimum of 100 years.
