The Process of Paper transformation is extraordinary. The paper itself takes me on a journey like never before. While temperature and body heat plays a great role in foundation. Cool temperatures finalizes the physical structure.
Inside my studio brain storming various paper projects.
"When I am in my studio of sanctuary, the world outside disappears. In my studio there is no day, night and no weather. I have no age nor past, I am simply there working, creating and inspiring. I am Fabricaly Beautiful".
By Shimah Harris
Texture, light, Paper , Instllations – details like these can transform a room, making you feel like a new person whenever you’re in it.
My work is based on a method of work constructed numerous folded papers erecting from a wooden plate. Originating from a feminist inspired movement of the late 20th century, my work responds to traditions of female labor and crafts. Strongly connected to her basic material of paper, I question the emotional response the materials evokes and its contemporary value in an age of digitally archived knowledge replacing material for size value and microscopic vision, I transform not only the materiality of the works but their physical effect on the viewer. The name Fabricaly Beautiful comes from "Paper made Beautifully" .
