Artist Creates Incredible Facial Sculptures Made From Folded Paper

0

Daughter of artists, Polly Verity grew up in an environment where there were plenty of art materials to hand and she was encouraged to experiment. Her step-grandfather, Eric de Mare had written a book “Your Book of Paperfolding” in the 1960s.

Later on, when she was about 8, he gave her a copy. This inspired a journey in paper, the idea that you could transform a flat sheet into three dimensions was very exciting. She has been experimenting with paper ever since.

In her words about the process “When I hit the curved folds that’s when my brain popped. Seemingly impossible things could happen to a sheet of paper. My years of observing and investigating how curve folds behave has given me a feel for bringing the curves into the figurative realm. I tried to fold along the profile of a face, and I realized that I could tweak the paper on either side just very slightly and ease curves out to give volume and form. When I tried the same technique in watercolour paper, I suddenly had micro-control over the resulting curved forms and they became soft and sensual. So each face goes on to inform the next and they have become a sort of series.”
