Making paper faces is an exciting new departure for artist Polly Verity. The paper kiss involves a delicate interfolding of two faces from the same sheet.
Building on fifteen years of paperfolding experience in the abstract geometrical and curved fold origami fields, she is now bringing these skills to create sculptural figurative works.
This sculpture is folded from a square sheet of damp watercolour paper, no cuts or glue. Each sculpture is folded freestyle, the form decided in the whim of the moment by the artist and therefore each one is unique and cannot be repeated.
