handmade paper sculptures
Landes Sullivan is 2 artists who make sculpture with handmade abaca and cotton papers. Gesture and energy come from nothing more complicated than varying the paper’s thickness, opacity, shape, color and form. Lashed together with fencing wire, foam board and wood, we want to give the work immediacy to keep viewers in the moment.
Nowadays, art is in the service of anything but the art itself. For us, it comes down to capturing the gesture and nailing a strong composition. The works are abstract. Their meaning is what the pieces resonate of our thinking and feelings as we made the works and lived with them during their incompleteness.
We make the work; people look at it. It's a transaction that grounds us.
