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.
3D Geometric (white-on-white) - This multifaceted geometric design is a free standing three dimensional piece. It is made of sixteen 20-sided icosahedrons, which perch precariously on just 2 triangle faces. Note how the shadows play off of the white to give the illusion of shades of gray.
