Right here, right now, I’m going to admit to you and the world that I’m a bit of a fraud.
Ok, maybe fraud is a bit too harsh of a word. What I mean to say is, on certain subjects here on Fresh Rag, I’m less than enthusiastic, and that’s just wrong.
You see, I love origami and paper sculpture. Some of the work I’ve seen lately, such as Diana Herrera’s paper animals, blows my mind, but not in the way that makes me want to jump off the computer and start working on a cut-paper design. When I see these pieces, I know without a shadow of doubt, I cannot come close to producing anything as beautiful and elegant.
The majority of my postings here are art prints, mostly because they are the most readily available subject that fits my paper parameters, but also because when I see art prints I love, my first thoughts go right to wanting to create something cool of my own. I’m a designer, an artist and I dabble in illustration and photography (very little dabbling); producing a cool art print would be a cake walk for me in comparison to trying fold a paper elephant.
Long story, short; I love these paper sculptures, but not in love with them so much that I feel like sharing each one I come across. The work needs to move me to do something similar, and I’m just not finding that to be the case. If you don’t see me posting paper sculpture often, now you know why. Instead, I’ll do my part to share them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, but you may not see them as readily here on the blog.
You never know, I could wake up tomorrow with a whole different outlook, I’m just that insane. In the meantime, go visit Diana Herrera; her work kicks major bootie.
