Manchester, England artist James Roper is a painter, illustrator, conceptual installation and site specific artist and a patient hand at kirigami and origami. This piece is a few years old, but I had not seen it until yesterday. Thought I’d share. Reminds me of the work by Paul Hayes and the 2008 University of Technology “Digital Origami” exhibition in Sydney.
James describes his artistic process as working with both tangible materials, such as paper, and with time as a conceptual element, as in the passage of time. The last piece pictured below, “Devotion”, is described: “Making on average ten per day, everyday, for three years, Devotion consists of approximately 10,000 origami flowers. 2002 - 2005″. Beautiful work.
