New Quilled Paper Anatomy by Lisa Nilsson

February 2, 2013

Paper artist Lisa Nilsson recently completed a number of new anatomical pieces using her profoundly incredible skill with quilling, a tedious process where paper is tightly wound into small rolls and then assembled into larger artworks. The natural formation of the paper coupled with Nilsson’s ability to identify the precise materials to mimic organic structures makes each artwork appear uncannily like actual cross-sections of humans and animals. The artist has a number of new works currently on display at the Boston Art Gallery as part of the exhibition Teaching the Body: Artistic Anatomy in the American Academy through March 31, 2013. Don’t miss it. Photography by John Polak.

Quilled Paper Anatomy by Sarah Yakawonis

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)
