Sculpture and James Grashow

Talk about the pleasures of cardboard.

Delphine at Paradis Express featured artist James Gashow's "House Plants". The sculptures, architectural bouquets, are beautifully crafted and sureally funny.

I wanted to show you his bird or CardBirds as he calls them. His website says that the art is "Inspired by the James Audubon prints, Cardbirds strive to create a unique dimensional vision. The birds and their habitat - timeless and beautiful - are married to the most banal and overlooked of materials. These intricate sculptures are made entirely from corrugated board and twist ties. Beneath the beauty of these remarkable pieces, the materials from which they are created make a poignant statement."

Those "cardbirds" are fantastic! Love the fish in the mouth of the crane.
