Helen Snell Bronze Metallic Paper Tree Boat

This exquisite 'Tree Boat' paper sculpture has been laser-cut from bronze metallic cardboard and comes with a box.

(Copper Tree Boat pictured behind, sold separately).

Helen Snell is a well known paper artist specialising in laser cutting of paper, metal, other mixed media, and also 3D printing.

"Combining the mass produced and the unique is, for me, humorous and ironical and full of suggestion and contradiction." 

She is interested in the process of reproduction (printmaking, digital media, collage, photocopies) and also by the theme of reproduction (with reference to biotechnology, genetics, sex and consumerism). Printed images and multiples enable a process of vulgarisation, undermine the obsession with originality, so that content becomes the primary concern. The repetition of the same imagery echoes our obsession with labels and brands as assurances of quality and also, paradoxically, echoes our fears provoked by images of cloning and other genetic interventions. She is especially interested in the idea of the imperfect edition. To subvert the idea of an edition is exciting and a relevant metaphor for the paradoxical relationship between group identity and individuality.
