Paper Portrait Smoking

In stock


Smoking paper portrait, hand-folded from a square of watercolour paper.

Each sculpture is completely unique, it is created freestyle and so the form appears at the whim of the artist, in the moment. The paper sculpture is created by easing curved folds into a sheet of dampened watercolour paper. As it dries, the sculpture stiffens and its new form is captured.
Forming the portrait with something in the mouth allows for depth and shadow around the mouth and thus allows the sculpture to be more three-dimensional.
