Artwork Description

I watched The Cell, and then ate pistachios before bed. I have no other explanations, except that concrete origami would be...well...cool.

This is my favorite of yours, I visited your website a few months ago and i immediately fell in love with this one. Those textures are excellent, the origami bird made of concrete seems to be very light yet he's earth bound! Excellent ooh and I think the overall compostion is stunning, with the wheels behind it and iron sticking out of the concrete, truly amazing.

I think this one is my very favourite of yours--the rusty textures and washed out palette really draw my eye in (I love that kind of stuff!) The concept is amazing, too...I wish I'd thought of it!

This is quite unique. I've never imagined this kind of concept, but now you make me want to eat pistachios to see what pops into my head. This is fabulous.

I really like different machines, and this one is different and very well done.

...would probably explain the colour. the texturing is suitably 'decayed' as M. Targete said, but the most fascinating would be the crane itself. After looking at this the first time one of my elves played with spoon-and-fork-origami. Thank you for the inspiration.

This I like, oh yes, I like.

Just a question, Why dont you try more often doing this sort of thing?

Art at its best.
