Fabricated Paper Worlds

Paper sculptures by Charles Clay (1)

A few years ago, I featured Charles Clary’s paper sculptures in a post entitled “Layered Worlds.” At present, he has a new blog and artwork to view.

Notes from the artist’s statement (from Clary’s official site):

I use paper to create a world of fiction that challenges the viewer to suspend disbelief and venture into my fabricated reality. By layering paper I am able to build intriguing land formations that mimic viral colonies and concentric sound waves. These strange landmasses contaminate and infect the surfaces they inhabit transforming the space into something suitable for their gestation. Towers of paper and color jut into the viewer’s space inviting playful interactions between the viewer and this conceived world. These constructions question the notion of microbial outbreaks and their similarity to the visual representation of sound waves, transforming them into something more playful and inviting.
