Artist Polly Verity Creates Incredible Facial Sculptures Made From Folded Paper

UK-based artist Polly Verity creates incredible facial sculptures made from folded paper. Origami has been practiced for hundreds of years a pure abstract tessellated form, Polly creates these facial sculptures made from folded paper in a innovative way.

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.”
