By weaving, creasing and tucking the surface of a paper sheet, austrian artist Aldo Tolino creates geometric mutations of human portraits. The distortions generate new facial representations, expressions, and personalities, translating the original picture into a manipulated deformity. Polygonic shapes that are formed on the closed plane transform noses, eyes, and mouths into abstract configurations, composing sculptural reinterpretations of the flat medium. The three-dimensional portrayals reconsider paper as a material by rendering it as a structural artwork.
