I’m really enjoying these quilled paper anatomy pieces by artist Sarah Yakawonis. Like so many great artists featured here on Colossal it’s immediately apparent when looking at these sculptures that Yakawonis possesses a patience unlike anything I can comprehend. You can see more of her work (and buy prints) over on Etsy and Society6. If you liked this, also check out the work of Lisa Nilsson. (via all things paper)

Artist Guy Laramee (previously) has recently completed a number of new sculptural works where he transforms thick tomes into incredible topographical features including mountains, caves, volcanoes, and even water. Many of the works are part of a new project titled Guan Yin, a series of work dedicated to the forces that enable individuals to endure grief and pain, or in his words “the mysterious forces thanks to which we can traverse ordeals.” If you happen to be near Quebec, a number of Laramee’s works are currently on view at Expression gallery in Saint-Hyacinthe through August 12.

Update: You can also see a number of works by Laramée at Foster/White Gallery in Seattle.

Oakland-based artist Annie Vought (previously here and here) has completed several new structural paper works created by carefully cutting handwritten text out of large sheets of paper. Of her work Vought says:

The handwriting and the lines support the structure of the cut paper, keeping it strong and sculptural, despite its apparent fragility. In these paper cutouts, I focus on the text, structure, and emotion of the letter in an elaborate investigation into the properties of writing and expression. Penmanship, word choice, and spelling all contribute to possible narratives about who that person is and what they are like. my recreating the letters is an extended concentration on peoples’ inner lives and the ways they express their thoughts through writing.

You can learn much more about these new works over on designboom and in her recent interview over on In the Make. Vought currently has work at a recently extended group show titled In Other Words at Intersection for the Arts in San Francisco.

I was absolutely floored watching this enchanting stop motion video directed by Vincent Pianina and Lorenzo Papace for a song called Østersøen that was also written, composed, and recorded by Papace for his band Ödland off the album Sankta Lucia. What strikes me most about the video is the transitions between scenes, as objects change scale or as the camera zooms in to reveal alternate dimensions embedded in the smallest of areas. You’ll watch it two or three times before you see everything. See many more making-of photos over on Le Petit Écho Malade. Can somebody please give this Papace guy lots of money so he can make a short film? I would pay lots of money to see it.

I just stumbled onto these beautiful collages by Princeton-based artist Erika Iris who deftly reconfigures sheet music to create portraits and other illustrations. The Beethoven and MLK pieces are especially wonderful, but don’t miss some of her other works with paper or her portraits made from cassette tape and old film.
