Paper Sculpture Art ‘Above The Clouds With Jonathon Livingstone’ by Amanda Deadman
This paper sculpture art is inspired by Amanda’s all-time favourite book: Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
The initial painting is in watercolour. Each of the birds has been cut from the painting and decoratively arranged in a graduating colour square in the centre of the frame. They are attached to heavy watercolour paper with tiny foam board plinths and framed within a white glazed deep box frame.
The graduated blue, green, aqua, yellow, copper, gold and white modern relief design reveals individual seagulls on closer inspection. The direction of the light casts different shadows adding yet another dimension to this paper sculpture art. The result is truly hypnotic!
Amanda’s sculptural artworks are unique and hand signed by the artist.
N.B. The image shown is an example of the series. Amanda makes each individual piece by hand, therefore every one is unique and will vary slightly from the one shown.
The artwork is framed in a white glazed (Perspex) deep box frame.
