Richard Sweeney manipulates materials to create amazing sculptural models. The images below are from a series of explorations in paper folding and constructed form.
According to Richard “When faced with a flat sheet of material, there is no obvious indication of how it can be manipulated into a three dimensional object. The limitations of paper as a form making material offer a challenge, which through playful investigation results in tangible models. The process was purely experimental, and no pre-determined outcome was specified. It soon became apparent that paper was valid as a sculptural medium in its own right, which could be used to create pieces with aesthetic rather than utilitarian value.”
