Amazingly intricate modular paper sculptures by Richard Sweeney

English artist Richard Sweeney creates delicate and intricate modular sculptures out of paper, taking inspiration from geometry and organic forms found in nature, such as mounds of snow and clouds.

Richard Sweeney was born in Huddersfield, England in 1984. He discovered a natural talent for sculpture at Batley School of Art and Design in 2002, which led him to the study of Three Dimensional Design at the Manchester Metropolitan University, where he concentrated on the hands-on manipulation of paper to create design models, which ultimately developed into sculptural pieces in their own right. Richard creates sculptures inspired by the organic structures and growth patterns in nature. Driven by curiosity to discover three-dimensional forms through the physical manipulation of material, he takes a hands-on approach to creation, utilising the unique properties of mundane materials to discover unique forms, working predominantly with paper as a sculptural medium. He has lectured at universities internationally and regularly holds workshops to share his knowledge of paper folding and construction techniques.
