A guarantee of paper cuts must be part of the job for paper sculptor, Lydia Kasumi Shirreff. Precision with a blade is a must, as is an apparent and intoxicating love of colour and pattern. We like that there is a youthfully crafty joy in her work, as well as more geometry than you can shake a glue stick at.

When seeing the work of Calvin Nicholls for the first time, it’s difficult to work out exactly what you’re looking at. They could be computer generated or even porcelain. In reality, they’re paper sculptures, but the level of skill and minuscule detail involved is breathtaking.

We like the mixture of cut-up, found textures and drawing in South Korean illustrator, Gwen Lee’s work. The blending of the two techniques makes a nice contrast for the two styles, making both catch the eye even more. As well as the found paper surfaces that have their own patterns, Gwen also uses her own marks on the paper before cutting them up, following through with the hand-drawn feel in the collage. She tells us more.

Duncan Sham’s experimental approach to materials in his typographical work brings a real physicality to them, which is original from one project to the next. Whether they are slick, digital designs or meticulously hand-made, the scale and level of details often makes them mini sets.

When seeing Matthew Shlian’s paper structures for the first time, you may be taken aback by the amount of time, patience, and skill that must have been involved. That’s bewildering enough but what is more interesting is the background to the crystalline, fractal patterns he creates.
