Faces and Silhouettes Created with Folded Sheets of Fabric
English artist Benjamin Shine has recently made an impressive installation at the Canberra Centre. In his artwork The Dance, he shaped dancers’ faces and bodies from 2000 meters of suspended tulle. From a step back, these veiled sculpture reminds us of realistic paintings. With folded, ironed and sewed sheets, he managed to reproduce silhouettes, shadows and light.
