Noud van den Boer

May 27, 2010

These intricately folded paper creations are called “corrugations” and they were folded by Dutch artist Noud van den Boer. I wish I could tell you more about Noud. I’m usually pretty good at hunting down information on the Net, but not much luck today I’m afraid. I can tell you he’s a paper folder and photographer. His works have been shown in Dutch galleries. He was born in 1949. Here’s a rough translation of a gallery listing for Noud:

photographer Noud van den Boer (The Hague, 1949), has a life long fascination with paper and the opportunities it offers. His trips to Japan and his interest in the culture of that country brought him into contact with origami, the Japanese art of folding, which he has intensively practiced. By experimenting with this paper he developed abstract shapes that originate in nature. Noud examines what occurs when a basic shape repeats endlessly. By this repetition he creates a structure that provides its own form. The result is always a surprise. The design of the basic folds is done by feel. His paper structures are further manually filled with paint, pastels and various pigments. The folding technique Noud uses is internationally known as “corrugations”.

Noud has an extensive Flickr gallery with lots more images. Check them out for paper folding inspiration.
