Rolling Paper Band

I am truly enamored with paper. I love folding it, rolling it, cutting it, spilling ink and paint on it, and studying the reflections it gives off. At times it stares back at me, especially when I can find no words to write on its pure, white surface. Here's how a simple, quick sketch of a nude transformed itself in my mind into a rolling paper band.

You will notice that this is no simple transformation, as the paper band goes deep into the internals of the body, which is no longer solid. Also, I staged the figure in an environment where light drizzles from above in glowing colors, and shadows of the paper band are cast all the way down, nearly reaching you.


  1. WOW! Stunning and mind-boggling! I'm in awe!

  2. Awesome..Stunning.. A true gift of Art from God.. I cannot even draw a stck man correctly. Your work bloes my mind
