Four of my folds showcased by an art gallery!

Post by Gerardo »

Is this thread more appropiate on the General Origami subforum than here? If I should have posted it on the other subforum, would an administrator or moderator please help me move it? So sorry for the inconvenience :oops:.

What :shock:?! An art gallery is showcasing four of my folds on their Facebook page! It's the first time ever a place like this shows some interest in my folds. I'm speechless!

And you know what :D?! Two of them came from the monthly design challenge here in the forum:

This is my comment—which accompanies the four folds—translated to English:
Gerardo wrote:"Landscape", "Being Sumapaz", "The Mass Production of Members of Society" and "Sculpting a Crane" raise a question about folding paper: Can this traditional and mundane practice communicate something about nature, relationships, power, and the arts? The four pieces emerged from a concern regarding the potential of the folding practice to move away from representation and closer to the conceptual-metaphorical. They reveal the spell of paper, a material that has led me to express and form emotional ties with it, with folding, people, and the world in general.
Fellow members of the forum, It would be really helpful to me as an origamist if a few of you post a comment on any of the two Facebook posts. What would you say about the four folds I made (good and bad)? I would like to bring a little more attention to the posts; that's why I ask you this favor [-o< :). It's perfectly OK to make the comment in English.

What has happened is a very big deal to me as an origamist!

I wanted to insist. What you write about my four folds on the Facebook comments will make them more visible to the very art gallery and viewers of their Facebook page. I'd like to promote origami in the art world that way, but I also confess I'd like to know your opinion about the four pieces.

Would you please post a comment on any of the two posts?
