Every snowflake is one of a kind due to its lone journey through the atmosphere all the way to the ground. This paper sculpture is inspired by the formation of snow crystals and the phenomenon of how a journey and experience shapes something. Through this artwork I have explored the fantasy of what if the snow crystal captured what it witnessed. A memory frozen within its heart that blooms into its structure and colors. Titled 'Macaw' the paper art captures the beauty of the Scarlet Macaw in flight. The shape of the wingspread, the long tail reflects in the crystal's structure. While the bright reds, blues, greens and yellow fill it up to the brim. The artwork is made up of 25 layers of intricately cut paper. Each layer is stacked on top of another adding to its depth. It comes alive under the spell of light revealing its true dimensional value. Please Note: The frames shown in the images are for representational purpose only. The art comes unframed
Hi! I am Zubin Jhaveri, a Mumbai based paper sculptor and designer. After graduating from art college, I set out on a journey of self discovery and expression. Scaled Dimensions was born out of this pursuit of meaning, to make art that breaks the barrier between dimensions and transports the viewer to a mesmerizing space. As an artist, I love to experiment and keep adding to my skill set. I started with making photo-realistic portraits and scale models then took up designing 3D puzzles and paper sculptures. What they all have in common is intricacy. I have experimented with different mediums over the years but paper remains the mainstay for expressing my views. Paper modeling was a childhood hobby that eventually became a full time passion. I enjoy taking a forgotten subject and adding my perspective to bring out different facets of it. Exploring a topic from different angles is the reason most of my work is in series. I usually spend a year on a project and strive to make it more intricate and colorful than the last.
