“Under my wings, you’ll learn to fly.” One of my favourite songs is Lisa Loeb’s “Dance With The Angels”. I can’t say that the song inspired these paper sculptures but it is the perfect anthem for them. Using (yet again, my favourite, Kozuke paper) I constructed these winged forms after a series of drawings that I completed a few years ago. I’m not a patient artist so this project required my exact attention.
Kozuke is crisp and forgiving. A sharp blade cuts through it effortlessly and it accepts rice paste readily. “I float in skies, in your eyes, in your eyes”.
