Miniature Paper Sculptures By Cybele Young

I can’t have enough of the amazing paper sculpture of Cybèle Young, an internationally renowned artist based in Toronto, Canada. She creates unique miniature sculptures from Japanese washi papers, and sometimes embellished with copperplate etchings. Each sculptural artwork is a poetic scene with interesting juxtaposition, inspired by the mundane of everyday objects. What fascinates me the most is, the teeny tiny scale of the paper sculptures and the delicate materials they are made of.

The Forum Gallery will be showcasing Cybèle Young’s New Paper Sculpture titled “Some Changes Were Made” from June 4 to July 17, 2015. Click here to see the entire exhibition online.

“In this exhibition, she explores the life of everyday objects that are left behind or lost by their owners. Using abstract and familiar motifs she juxtaposes the “lost” sculptures against each other, to create a sense of dialogue between them, and animating their metamorphosis from ordinary objects into fantastical forms that beguile the viewers with possibilities. The exhibition also features a stop motion film installation by the Artist, of a folding-table exploring its moving parts, its fictional history and its future possibilities.” – Forum Gallery
