Paperfolds

Tony’s ‘Paperfolds’ combine drawing with folding to create regular and irregular geometric surfaces and reliefs from a single sheet of material.

Tony’s current material of choice is a polymer-based drafting film with a matte translucent surface that absorbs and reflects light.  Light cast over the surface of each artwork transforms its flatness to relief to create illusions of depth deeper than the actual surface.  These shifting perceptions are further heightened with the movement of the viewer.
