about her WORK
“Paper’s versatility is what attracted me to it as my primary medium. Its structural and aesthetic possibilities reveal themselves through my continuous experimentation. I am in love with paper.
I have been folding paper for 15 years. I like repetition and rhythm. My first paper piece was conceived during a stay in Las Vegas and made with hotel stationary: The project folded up and stowed away in the bottom of my suitcase. At that time I began working more abstractly as a way of representing my impressions of places and recollections. Paper became the perfect material to convey ephemeral experience and the ultimate intangibility of memory.
Transforming a two-dimensional surface into a three dimensional shape offers a variety of arrangements for the play of light and shadow on different flat planes.
I use folding to investigate these opportunities, and the circle acts as a character to reveal and conceal form. When repeated, these forms are my substitute for the geometric grid, my response to the squares of Sol Lewitt and Carl Andre and homage to Agnes Martin’s rectangles.”
let me start the day by showing you my new products by BENEFIT and WET’N WILD. my awesome mom brought me these goodies from the united states and I already played around with some of them.
there is one piece by the FERGIE collection of WET’N WILD its called ON EDGE and its an creme eyeliner in a pot with a brush – the shade is called little black dress. such a sweet name!
then I got two of the WET ‘N WILD MEGA LINER in 863 TURQUOISE and 860 BLACK SPARKLE, a BALM STAIN in 124 LADY AND THE VAMP and a IDOL EYES stick in gold (who are you wearing).
last but not least there is the amazing BENEFIT BROW ZINGS medium that I always wanted and now finally have 🙂 the brow set contains 2 colors and 2 brushes and a tiny tweezer.
these are my newest products and I will soon show them to you in person. stay tuned. xx
HATS HATS HATS <3
I can not get enough of it!
so far I have been wearing my burgundy “H&M” hat and my beige/red “JUICY COUTURE” hat in september and oktober and in that sense I am really looking forward to fall/winter season 🙂
your outfit will look more complete you dont have to worry about your hair and you wont need an umbrella – these are only few advantages of wearing a hat and I guess there are a gazillion reasons more to wear your fedora, bowler, homburg, tryolean, cowboy or porkpie!
ladies wear your hats with style! xx
