Origami is an Artform I do really love and adore doing but I'm not so good at (my Mum is amazing!) ANY Paperart has always intrigued me, I think it's the way you can create something out of a reused (in my style) piece of trash... lol yeah I'm always thinking that way.
artist: Tran Trung Hieu
I know not every Paper Artist thinks this way but I like to encourage them to do so.
There is an exhibition right now featuring the best Origami Artists in the World in New York. Many articles are pointing out the relationship between Science and Art, which is ANOTHER theme I just adore exploring.
EXHIBITION: SURFACE TO STRUCTURE
THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2014, 7:00PM - 8:30PM
The Cooper Union was the site of the 1959 exhibition Plane Geometry and Fancy Figures: the first origami exhibition in the United States. One of its primary contributors was Lillian Oppenheimer, founder of The Origami Center, which later evolved into OrigamiUSA. The exhibition included the works of Akira Yoshizawa, Giuseppe Baggi, Ligia Montoya, Robert Harbin, Robert Neale, and other notable artists.
For the first time in 55 years, origami will be brought back to The Cooper Union in the Surface to Structure exhibition. In addition to presenting a small number of pieces folded by the same artists in the 1959 exhibition, the folded forms on display will show origami’s transformation, including sculptures that push the boundaries of this artform beyond its traditional perceptions. The exhibition will feature the work of established artists as well as up and coming artists and communicate the range and complexity of origami styles.
The exhibition will be free and open to the public. Exhibition hours are Monday through Thursday 8AM - 5:15PM
has an amazing amount of animations to help you create many pieces.
A Journey through Youtube will also reveal probably just about any instructions for any form you could possibly think of too!
Oh and do YOU create in Paper?? I would LOVE to see what you do!!
