Sydney-based paper Artist Gunjan Aylawadi make paper carpet installations. She was inspired by her desire to do something new with a simple material like paper. Strips of paper are rolled and coiled then woven and glued into place to create dimensional artworks.
This unique technique involves hand cutting thousands of strips of paper and twisting them tightly around a thin wire to get paper curls. Then she glues them into hand drawn patterns to make these works. Her works are meticulous paper weaving where paper is both material and color. Aylawadi uses geometry and the tension in curled paper strips to create relief works that rise up from the surface and reveal their richness to the viewers as they come closer and move around them.
