We could make sculpture without our handmade paper, but we'd rather not.

Landes Sullivan is wife and husband collaborators, Barbara Landes and Paul Sullivan, making art together in Madison, Wisconsin. The work grows out of our handmade papers and our studio experiments and tribulations with paper fibers. Other materials come in to complement and sometimes literally to support the paper such as insulation foam board, wood and heavy wire. MORE

We met in grad school, an Academy in NYC. The figure didn’t stick with us, but we did. We shared a studio in Jersey City for 13 years before moving to Madison for more grad school for Barbara in printmaking and papermaking at UW Madison and Center for the Book in Iowa.
