Jacob Whewell

Before my degree, I was a painter and a painter only. Needless to say, I had little interest in pursuing three-dimensional art. However, through the compelling insight of my lecturers, I began to let go of my inflexible and stubborn direction. As time passed, I learned to appreciate the sophistication of materials’ simplified arrangements and respect the essence of what makes a material individual to itself, Such as paper. Paper on its own is sometimes overlooked. We use paper to plan other pieces and then put it aside, or to draw and paint over. Either way, paper is typically just a steppingstone in reaching another goal, and understandably. Through this piece, I aimed to exhibit the versatility and elegance of suspended paper, with an organic-like hollow interior that breaths between each sheet, creating a deceptive sense of depth and weight.
