Shelley Martin Gallery: Paper Sculpture Artistry from the Mendocino Coast


Fantasm -- photo by Sienna M Potts -- artwork © Shelley Martin

This piece has many layers. First, there are hidden messages on crushed paper in my own calligraphy. To further obscure the messages, I sprayed paint over some of them. Then, I covered the piece in black tulle. Still not satisfied with the degree of obfuscation, I sprayed the tulle with white paint. Lastly, the piece is sitting on an old paper fan that I tore up to make a suitable base. Fantasm is made from paper, glue, spray paint, and tulle. It measures 23" x 31" x 26" and is part of the tradition in which messages have been concealed and delivered in fans.
