Maud Vantours is a French paper craft, sculpture artist. Her work is so intricate yet simple- i have wanted to create something involving layered paper for a while and found these images really brought that idea back to life. They show the possibility of paper, and reinventing a surface which is something i find really interesting. I am using these images to inspire my next piece of work which is going to explore the idea of form, and combining two surfaces in a sleek and beautiful way. As well as this i want to explore the idea of paper as precious- changing it from a throw away item to something desirable and more exciting.
Along with these images i have been taking inspiration from contour lines on maps, and looking at other layered surfaces.
