The Circular Paper Art of Yvette Hawkins
Book and sculpture seem to be the petals of the same art flower. And those art flowers find a very fertile soil in the UK apparently.
Yvette Hawkins is one of the young British artists that does more than fold paper, she creates art.
She folds paper and binds it together to create decorations and extravagant displays. She uses folding, cutting, printing stitching and weaving to create each and every single piece.
She explores the way object work on a larger scale. For her works, the strength lies in numbers.
The work is concerned with the physical acts of looking, reading and listening encouraging viewers to consciously be aware of their surroundings, controlling and manipulating the way things can be seen, read and heard.
Not only does she sculpt and fold but she also holds workshops on:
- Book arts and bookbinding
- Paper making

About Le Poissonchat: If she wasn't a catfish, she'd probably be a hyperactive bookworm; but she's an energetic person interested in what is and what isn't a good read, a worthwhile piece of art or an out of the ordinary movie. Whether a subject is underwater, underground, above ground or up on cloud nine she'll find it and write it.
