Amsterdam-based Andenken Gallery is hosting concurrent solo exhibitions of American artists Evan Hecox and Drew Leshko. “Northern” showcases Hecox’s ongoing series of paintings based on photos from his trip through Iceland and the Netherlands last year while Leshko’s “Heaven is Whenever” captures the transition and decay of urban life through dollhouse-scale sculptures made from wood and paper.

Incredible paperworks by New Delhi-born, Sydney-based artist Gunjan Aylawadi. The mosaic-like patterns are created using rolled up strips of paper, woven and glued into place. I really want to run my fingers along them to feel the texture. See more images below!

Gorgeous series by Helsinki-based artist Maija Savolainen. “Paperworks (See/Sea)” is made up of sheets of folded (white A4) paper, placed in direct sunlight and photographed at different times of the day/year. A study on photographic ways of seeing, the final result looks like a horizon line when seen from afar and a folded piece of paper upon closer inspection. More images below.
Playing with the relationship between public art and private correspondence, Oakland-based artist Annie Vought’s labyrinth-like patterns of hand-cut letters are based on actual pieces of writing she’s stumbled upon. If you look closely enough she even adheres to the penmanship, word choice and spelling of the original authors. More images below!
San Francisco-based artist Tiffanie Turner creates incredible flower sculptures made up of tiny bits of paper carefully pieced together, with some pieces reaching up to 5 feet wide and taking over 200 hours to complete!
