Clearly inspired by the organic forms of nature like mounds of snow and clouds, English artist Richard Sweeney creates delicate modular sculptures out of paper.

Unbelievable, yet most of these 3D sculptures came to life from paper, since the Wakefield-based artist works primarily with a ruler and cutter to bend fold and glue together his complex sculptures, which range from table-top size to floor-to-ceiling installations. We simply loved his pleated sculptures (they reminded us of Issey Miyake’s “Pleats Please” campaign), which often don’t even use glue to achieve their three-dimensional terrain look.

Do note that Richard Sweeney is currently part of a touring show titled “Above the Fold, plus he’ll be showing his work at the CODA Museum in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands later this coming summer.
