One Sheet Of Paper

I came across these the other day and thought that they were just wonderful!! They are entries for an art competition at the Hirshorn Modern Art Gallery in DC and the rule was that each artist could only use one sheet of paper. There are some amazingly talented people out there....


I want the tree one!!!

That's the great thing about art and creative work - there are no bariers even when some are imposed. These are amazing.

SueG said...

These are amazing! Ok, I might be able to write a book or two, but I couldn't begin to even imagine how to do something like these. Human creativity is...oops...I was going to say amazing again. I guess I'm speehless.

Mark said...

Where do you find these things?
I like the tower best.

Carol said...

MOB - I love finding random thing like this. I know that there is no way I would be able to create something like that so am in awe when I find people who can!!

SueG - They are just stunning aren't they!! I wouldn't have a clue how to create something like them either!! Can you imagine how gutted you would be if you ripped a bit...doesn't bare thinking about does it!!

Mark - Erm, I don't really know!! I usually stumble upon them by accident :-)

I love the tower too...but I'm afraid it wouldn't last long in our house...one flying cat and it would all be over!!

Superb. Simple but brilliant. I love the tree as well.

People are so talented - me, I wouldn't begin to know what to do with it. You would though - you'd rock!

How creative! I love the second one - and the one of the person saving the other one falling out of the window.

So playful!

Ann said...

How wonderful are these, I especially love the
4th down, man hanging off, very clever indeed, jeez my A4's are used to print things off, or to mop up can's of Pepsi that seem to fall on the table when nobody is looking.

BT said...

How amazing and what a challenge. I love the chap holding the other one and stopping him from falling best. They're all amazing though.

Carol said...

Helen - They are fab aren't they!! Very clever!!

French Fancy - I don't think I would you know....it would never have occurred to me to do anything like that!!

Ladyfi - It's the second one and the house tower that just amaze me!!

Ann - I was gobsmacked when I first saw them and I did spend some time looking at a couple of them thinking 'How the hell did they do that??'.

BT - These are the kind of things I look at and think 'God, I wish I could create things like that!!'. Your right, they are amazing!!

Aren't they beautiful! And how do they keep the paper so pristinely clean?!

Carol said...

Lane - LOL!! I never thought about that!!

Kitty said...

Oh NEAT!
Here is the website of the artist who created these, the ones done with colour, like 'Heaven and Hell' are fantastic! Mind-bogglingly satisfying and thank you for pointing out this Danish artist.

Kitty - Thank you so much for that link!! I've just spent a ridiculous amount of time on his website!!

Right, now I'm going to pop over to yours for a nosey :-)

Someone sent these to me via e mail recently. I was amazed by them! Aren't they just so lovely, thank you for reminding me of them again. It would be great to see them in 'the flesh' as it were.

Have you seen the Banksey exhibition at the Bristol museum yet?

Carol said...

Suburbia - I've actually e-mailed the guy who created them asking if they are going on display anywhere in the UK (I know...sad aren't I!!)

I've not seen the exhibition yet. We were in Bristol a couple of weeks ago and were tempted till we drove past and saw the queue!! Have you been? (My Mum is coming to stay in a few weeks and I was thinking that we might go and see it...she loves all things arty too!!)

Debs said...

They're incredible, especially the quirky house one. I can't think how someone could actually manage to do that.

Carol said...

Debs - I'm exactly the same!! I couldn't work out how someone would know what bit's to cut out to make the required shape....must takes ages!!
