Artist makes intricately constructed paper based sculptures

I am an artist who makes intricately constructed paper-based sculptures. I am interested in the way this humble material can open a view into imagined worlds.

I began working with paper over 15 years ago. Over time, I became interested in how this simple material could encapsulate all my formal and conceptual interests. Paper comes in endless forms. It can be used in multiple dimensions. It is easy to handle and manipulate, and it is available anywhere. It is inherently ephemeral, but given the right conditions, it can last for centuries.Artist Michael Velliquette

My current series of monochrome paper sculptures started around 5 years ago. For these works I transform paper’s modest nature by constructing objects that convey strength, intent, and durability, but which also require conscious observation and care. They are at once abstract layers and shapes, and also structures that from one moment to the next suggest fortress-like constructions, tiered mandalas, or complex mechanical gears. Cut and assembled exclusively by hand, these works can take up to 500 hours to complete.

The broad aim of this investigation is to use three-dimensional structure and intricate detailing to push the boundaries of paper art literally into a new dimension.
