Stonefly Sculptures

Gail Armstrong exceeds herself with these shoebox sculptures for Stonefly in Italy.
The brief was to create two different environments which appear to have developed and unfolded from the shoeboxes themselves, one summery and rural, the other youthful and active. Gail built the pieces keeping in mind that they may be animated in the future, she says of the commission; "The trick with the images was to use multiple layers of paper bonded together where the sculpture had to look convincing as a cardboard shoebox, and single layers of paper where the sculpture required depth and form."
