Echiko Ohira: Works In Paper


  • Palos Verdes Art Center 5504 Crestridge Rd Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (map)

The large-scale paper sculptures in Echiko Ohira: Works In Paper echo distantly the forms of the natural world.  Countless layers of Kraft and recycled paper are torn, stacked, and sewn into shapes that might be the memories of nests, sea creatures, and flowers.  Some pieces are left raw, others are painted with searing cadmium red or deep indigo, or stained faint brown with tea.

Other, smaller works form orbs of twisted paper intertwined with other elements: delicate networks of knotted string or twisted wires that hover over the globes like sea foam drifting on tiny worlds.
