Djanogly Gallery Installation: Ice Form - Nov 2014 - Feb 2014

Ice Form-AS-Djanogly Café-31.jpg

Ice Form takes inspiration from the freezing process as it occurs in the natural world. This natural phenomenon can create magnificent forms and patterns such as icicles, ice caves and frozen waterfalls. This installation was produced through multiple layers of hand cut and folded paper, which builds up to form the 3D structure. A layering process which has a connection to the creation of the ice structures seen in nature, which are often formed from layers of melted and frozen water.

Ice Form was commissioned by The Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham. 

Watch the video below to see how the piece was constructed and installed.

New York Cityscape - Mini Paper Cut

Here are some shots of the recently finished New York Cityscape paper cut.  I was privately commissioned to create a New York paper cut that incorporated some of the famous skyline and to condense it into just an A4 (210 x 297mm) piece of paper.  Lasercut limited editions will soon be available so please fell free to get in touch if you are interested. 

New illustration commission - Dubai Cityscape

I recently worked with Ink Global to produce a paper sculpture for the cover of WIZZ Air in flight magazine. I was asked to capture some of Dubai's famous landmarks in paper sculpture form and to include a font that somehow visually related to the wording 'Dubai for less'. My solution was for the price tag around the Burj Khalifa building. The piece was constructed in layers that could be rearranged like a small set, which was then photographed.
