Dominik Mersch Gallery
Here at Dread Central we do our very best to seek out the mad, the curious, and the macabre. We just came across something you cats HAVE GOT to see! Flexible paper sculptures! You just have no idea how insane these are. Watch these videos immediately!
The following flexible paper sculptures were on display at the Dominik Mersch Gallery in Sydney, Australia. They come to the world courtesy of Beijing artist Li Hongbo. At first glance they look as if they’re made of fine porcelain; however, they are actually thousands of layers of soft white paper, carved into busts, skulls, and human forms.
Hongbo became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape. Needless to say he’s turned this classic art form on its head and in the process revolutionized the practice and taken it 10 steps further.
Seriously, we’ve never seen anything like this before.
