Thousands of Paper Sheets Layered Into Colorful Formations

Charles Clary creates mesmerizing paper sculptures that will whisk you off to another world! Each one of his hand-cut paper formations is a blend of geometric shapes with suggestions of strange land formations, sound waves, or cell structures. He says, “I have created a viral like environment that creeps and grows across its surface. Upon viewing this world one might question whether or not we are voyeurs into this world or if this world is voyeuristically invading our own.”

Clary uses layers of paper, hand-cut into amorphous blobs, to create a variety of interesting, abstract shapes. His combination of bold colors, texture, and dimension form captivating visual arrangements that can take months to construct. A single installation can have as many as 4,000 individual cut sheets of paper, up to 30 panels, and over 14,000 spacers. The thin stacks of color spiral outward in exciting patterns that entice viewers to closely investigate each intriguing structure.
