Papercut by Kyle Kirkpatrick
Papercut by Kyle Kirkpatrick. Young British artist Kyle Kirkpatrick was born in Norwich, Bedfordshire, the United Kingdom. 22 year-old artist creates amazing sculptures from old books, and puts small figures of people into the carved compositions. “Whilst drawn to natural landscape formations I am both overwhelmed and cautious in their presence. I find myself shrinking, hesitant to interact fully. I feel dwarfed, unable to understand the immense scale and materiality before me. My practice is an attempt to make sense of the natural landscape around me, to create my ideal I understand and resolve through making, responding to forms and growths found in the natural world. I interpret by shrinking and condensing, implying forms by combining materials”.
Currently British artist Kyle Kirkpatrick is working between Bedfordshire and Peckham, London
Studio. From 2007 to 2010 Kyle studied at Norwich University College of the Arts. In January 2015 Kyle Kirkpatrick graduated from Trinity College London. He is a permanent participant of art exhibitions held in well-known museums and art galleries of Europe.
