Colombian artist Diana Beltran Herrera created a new series of hummingbird sculptures using shimmering golden paper. Herrera placed the hummingbirds next to flowers to show how a “dynamic element” looks in comparison to a “static element.” She’s interested in “how they cooperate together and the importance of the position and shape they both have to have to allow them to create a harmonic union.”
Lola Dupré is a collage artist and illustrator currently working near Avignon in the south of France. She produces highly detailed and fractured collage art. Her work is made the old-fashioned way, with paper, scissors and glue. She uses thousands of cuts and manipulates tiny shards of paper to create a strange, amorphous, almost fractal vision.
American artist Nick Georgiou creates incredible works almost entirely made of printed paper that he cuts and molds into art. The pieces are formed mostly from local newspapers of the area in which the sculpture was constructed. Georgiou wants the viewer to question the slow demise of the printed word. His works are at the moment presented at the Temple of Music and Art in Tucson, Arizona.
