handmade paper sculptures
Landes Sullivan are 2 artists who make sculpture with handmade abaca and cotton papers. The work is lashed together with fencing wire, foam board and wood to give it an immediacy meant to keep viewers - and us - in the moment.
Our works are abstract. Their meaning for us is what the pieces resonate of our thinking and feelings as we make the works and live with them during their incompleteness.
Making art is our clumsy effort to be for a while beyond us vs them. If people look at what we've made and pause in empathy, art becomes a transaction that grounds us.
