Hummingbird, 2010

Korean paper artist Cheong-ah Hwang who is currently based in Columbus, Ohio creates delicate paper sculptures that blur the line between 2D and 3D art using dimensional illusion. The paper is cut and layered to give the final object depth and form, but remains essentially a flat piece. You can see more of her new work including other paper illustrations over on Flickr.

Origami Artist Sipho Mabona Will Attempt to Fold a Life Sized Elephant from a Single Piece of Paper paper origami animals

Swiss origami master Sipho Mabona (previously) plans to fold a massive life-sized elephant from a specially produced 2,500 square foot (125 sqm) sheet of paper at the Art Museum in Beromünster, Switzerland. Titled White Elephant, the artist is currently raising funds for the endeavor through Indiegogo so he can fund the production of paper and hopefully film the project in a timelapse video similar to the animation above. Mabona is offering a number of rewards such as origami instructions and original folded pieces including his famous koi and swallows.

While at first these tiny paper objects by artist and designer Mandy Smith seem like playful miniature figures from a dollhouse, one shudders to imagine their application when you realize they’re made of carefully sculpted from sandpaper. From the scratchy bikini to the chaffing slide and the unspeakable horror of the toilet paper roll, each is more uncomfortable than the last. Yet it’s hard to deny Smith’s amazing talent in bending such an unforgiving material to her will. Photos by Bruno Drummond. (via It’s Nice That)

Tennessee-based artist Charles Clary knows a thing or two about patience as evidenced by his structural paper creations reminiscent of biological formations or topographical maps. In creating a new piece Clary can work for up to 12 hours a day cutting each thin layer in his delicately stacked sculptures that arise from gallery walls or descend into geometric volumes. The artist most recently had an exhibition at Brett Wesley Gallery last month, and you can see much more of his work on his website. (via Hi-Fructose)

Armed with a scalpel and latest edition of Le Devoir or the International Harold Tribune, Canadian artist Myriam Dion cuts rich textural patterns remeniscent of emroidered lacework right into the pages newspapers. Major design elements and photographs from the pages are often left intact or otherwise incorporated into her paper cuts, creating a strange element of harmony, as if the paper was always intended to look like this. It’s also amazing to consider that each tiny cut is made by hand, and yet more negative space is left behind than actual paper.

Dion, who is currently working on a masters degree in visual and media arts at the University of Quebec, has work in numerous upcoming exhibitions including Pulse Miami, Art Toronto 2013, and Foire en art actuel de Québec. (via Jealous Curator)
