Collection: Polly Verity : Paper Sculptor : Golden Grove

For over a decade, Polly folded geometric repeat patterns into paper to make low relief paper sculptures. During this time, curved folds made an appearance and seemingly impossible things began to happen to the sheet of paper.  Observing and investigating the effects of folding along a curve has given Polly a feel for bringing the curves into the figurative realm.

"I tried to fold along the profile of a face and I realised that I could tweak the paper on either side just very slightly and ease curves out to give volume and form. When I tried the same technique in watercolour paper, I suddenly had micro-control over the resulting curved forms and they become soft and sensual. Each face goes on to inform the next and they became a sort of series."
