Paper Sculptures by Matthew Picton

Three dimensional paper sculptures using texts and materials to explore the historic and fictional narratives associated with specific cities.
Cities are often described as living organisms; viewed as subject rather than object. Matthew Picton engages with this tradition of humanising the city by deconstructing the clean, uncompromising aesthetic of the cartographic city plan and imbuing it with the unique history and culture of each place.
