Paper Forms

These amazing sculptural artwork are hand crafted entirely with paper. Richard Sweeney was determined to become a graphic designer until his discovery for sculpture at Batley School of Art and Design.  He continued his education at Manchester Metropolitan University to study Three Dimensional Design where he experimented with sheet materials of paper, cardboard and laminated wood.  He originally designed these sculptures as prototypes before applying a more durable materials, but Richard calls them, "finely crafted objects in their own rights."

Richard Sweeney is an artist and a designer based in Huddersfield, England.  He will be displaying his art (represented by Victor Felix Gallery) at the Affordable Art Show in Battersea Park, London, from March 11-14, 2010.
