Thank you so much for the invitation. I expand on the time-honored medium of paper to find new forms of expression through direct complex modular paper folding.See my work at http://www.francenelevinson.com

This is my latest papers sculpture. It is created with color archival acid free paper and Ph neutral glue. I use a complex modular technique called Zhe Zhi.This technique is an ancient folk art technique known in the western world as 3 D Origami. This piece has about 3000 pieces of hand cut, hand folded,and glued pieces.I believe in the possibilities of paper as a fine art sculptural medium. I would like to know what you think.

Thank you for the invite. I am a paper sculptor using Zhe Zhi Chinese modular paper folding technique to find new forms of expression through this ancient art. My site has a video page for viewing each of my sculptures in the round.http://www.francenelevinson.com/apps/videos/

Are video galleries valuable for displaying sculptures?

Thank you for the invitation to join this global art group. I am a paper sculptor attempting to create fine art from an ancient Chinese modular paper folding technique called Zhe Zhi. The western world knows this as 3 D Origami. I am inspired by organic forms in my natural environment. I reduce them to simple, semi-abstract, dynamic, textural  creations of my own. The nature of this modular architecture is somewhat restricted by its structural mathematics. Topology and slope are represented by points on a circle or line segment. The modules are double point, double pocket, folded, archival color paper and Ph neutral glue. I hope to get my paper sculptures accepted as a fine art sculptural medium rather than a folk art craft, by exploring the limitless possibilities of this unique technique.
