My art efforts started when I saw "Between the Folds" a documentary about folded paper art. Paul Jackson showed what could be made with just one fold. It was beautiful. Then I saw Richard Sweeney's art, which has inspired years of my models using curved knife pleats.
I returned to metal recently, making a series of meditation figures and the table centerpieces. I continue to think of ways to fold a single sheet of material into a shape that sings. Fortunately, a two dimensional sheet is an excellent partner for three dimensional art. It follows directions precisely and is able to hold shapes from a gentle arch to a completely flattened crease.
My current big step is moving away from the stark, single sheet art piece, devoid of context. Multiple sheets, different media, pedestals, frames - I am leaping into a larger void which I am happy to fill.
