Flocks of Birds Laser Cut from Maps by Claire Brewster

May 14, 2014

notyou-1

Two new stunning pieces today from London-based artist Claire Brewster (previously) who creates delicate montages of birds, bees, and plants cut from maps. Some of her cartographic sculptures are cut by hand while others, like these, are laser cut and then pinned onto a board. Brewster shares via her artist statement:

Nature is ever present, even in the most urban environments, taking over wherever we neglect, living in a separate yet parallel universe. I take my inspiration from the natural environment, creating entomological installations of flora and fauna from imagined locations. My birds, insects and flowers transcend borders and pass freely between countries with scant regard for rules of immigration or the effects of biodiversity.

Brewster currently has several pieces on view at Pitfield London through June 20, 2014. (via Lustik)

The Mini Book of Major Events by Evan Lorenzen

May 13, 2014

mini-1

Trying to compress the history of Earth into a single book is an especially daunting task, the difficulty is compounded when the book you’re writing is the size of a nickel and is limited to just a few pages. Oh, and it needs lots of pictures. Lucky for us, illustrator Evan Lorenzen was up to the task and identified a few pivitol moments in history which he turned into this extremely tiny hand-bound book. You can see more of his miniature books over on his Tumblr. (via F*ck Yeah Book Arts)

Giant Paper Flowers by Tiffanie Turner

May 6, 2014

Christopher Jobson

flowers-1

Spanning nearly three feet wide, these giant fluffy flowers were crafted from paper by San Francisco-based artist and architect Tiffanie Turner. Because of the massive scale of each piece a single flower can take upward of 35-80 hours to assemble from crepe paper. She shares via her artist statement:

My work in paper stems from my background as an architect, particularly my interest in how things are made and the use of repetitive elements, along with my lifelong obsession with flowers and botanical drawings. The exploration of scale plays heavily into everything I do, and the organized chaos and rhythms in nature make the heads of flowers an excellent case study for me.

Later this week Turner opens a show titled “Heads” at Rare Device that runs through May 28, 2014. You can see more on her blog, and several pieces are available for purchase here. (via The Jealous Curator, My Modern Met)
