The Art Whisperer

(Above) Portrait of Samuel Beckett: Click on any image to see larger view—you'll be glad you did!








SIMON SCHUBERT IS A GERMAN ARTIST WHO FOLDS PAPER. He is better known for his large and visually powerful installations and sculpture. It is interesting for me to see an artist who can think in big terms, like the planning and execution of a large museum space and find equal comfort in sitting quietly with straight edge and burnisher to conceive these paper pieces. Subtle, quiet and delicate—these pieces have the ability to transport us with nary a pen, pencil, ink or traditional marking instrument.

This is such a remarkable work! I really admire the artist. It's amazing how much paper can "talk". That's why it is one of my very favorite materials. All my best!

This is very attractive alright. I strongly suspect that it's not done by folding though - more likely embossing of some sort.

Some portions definitely look embossed, though that could be produced by the burnisher, I suppose. Still, simply amazing!
