Amazingly Intricate Paper Sculptures

Rogan Brown creates beautiful sculptures out of layered hand cut watercolor paper that represents natural, organic forms that evoke the texture of stone, the movement of water, and the complexity of plant forms. Each sculpture is hugely time consuming and labor-intensive. Brown is an Anglo-Irish artist who resides in southern France. His choice of paper as a medium was really a happy accident, the result of continual experimentation with different materials. Paper perfectly captures the mixture of delicacy and durability that characterize the natural world.

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity…and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of a man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself." William Blake
