chris gilmour

these objects are beautiful in themselves, reducing something to monochrome in this way always has a mesmerising effect on me, but take a while to have a good look… they are all fabricated completely from cardboard

Gilmour has imposed a strict logic on his works he makes objects using only cardboard and glue. There is no supporting structure, no wooden or metal frame. His interpretations of everyday objects are created in adherence to the use of a pure and single material, but instead of the marble or bronze of classical statues, he has chosen one of the most humble and commonly found of our industrial times.
