Update: Quilled Paper Sculptures by Lisa Nilsson

Oct 10, 2013 - Nov 09, 2013Pavel Zoubok Gallery, New York City

Lisa Nilsson constructed these incredible anatomical sculptures using a technique called quilling or paper filigree. By rolling and shaping narrow strips of Japanese mulberry paper and the gilded edges of old books, the artist has created "densely squished and lovely internal landscape of the human body in cross section." Update: She will be opening a new exhibition at Pavel Zoubok Gallery in NYC this Thursday, October 10th, 2013.
