Richard Sweeney

Icosahedron II, 2006
80cm, 200gsm cartridge paper, adhesive.

Richard Sweeney was born and raised in Huddersfield, England. He is inspired by the demonstration of art through engineered structure. He creates objects that are simple to construct yet complex in appearance, and are efficient in the way they are produced, both in terms of construction time and material use.

Richard uses paper modelling as a means to generate form. Emphasising on the creation of form through hands, he discovers properties of the paper medium in a direct way. Understanding the potential of paper in its own right, lead to the creation of these sculptural forms.

A series of sculptural works created through the cutting, scoring and folding of paper.

This is fantastic. He is creating such a lovely and complicated geometric paper sculptures. I want to see more interesting paper art by him.

Wow, he is very talented, very artistic. It needs a good accuracy to make this paper sculpture, right? I also love the things associated with paper art, and when I saw his work, it makes me inspired. It seems that I have to learn the tips and tricks to make this art.
