This past week, we drove several hours to see an exhibit of paper....more importantly, the work of Isabelle de Borchgrave. She has taken three dimensional art to a whole different place. Her paper creations have resulted in the most amazing art....totally out of the box, but not too modern for my tastes. I am a traditionalist at heart and her work made my heart sing.
|It sounds simple, doesn't it?|
But....wait until you see what she has created!
Next Photo please....
|I am starting with her simple work.|
This is made from paper. The ties are also made from paper
The paper is all hand painted.
Every thing that Isabelle creates is done with paper...
|Well, here is where it gets tricky....|
This entire dress is made from paper...the ENTIRE dress!!
She also created shoes to match ...well, I shall continue......
|It really is all paper!|
|It's all in the details. |
(yes, even the ring is made from paper and how about those cuffs of lace?)
|the painting was exquisite. |
The folds of the material astonished me.
|No words to capture the delicacy of this dress.|
Remember...this is paper!!
|details that make me swoon.|
|This was my second favorite dress.|
It reminded me of Spring!
|found this crocus, half done and finished it up.|
Just a sweet nod to Spring.
|I was fiddling with this one, and my neighbor stopped by, |
and loved it so much that I gave it to her.
