Artist Gunjan Aylawadi works with little strips of cut paper rolled into strips and pasted into intricate mosaic-like patterns in a process she refers to as “weaving with paper.” Unlike quilling where a paper is rolled into tiny parts and viewed sideways, Aylawadi’s method relies on long folded strips that are woven and glued in place in a process a bit more akin to working with textiles. The work is slow and nearly meditative as each piece is outlined delicately on paper beforehand with a fair amount of math and geometry—although self-taught in art, she also hold degrees in engineering and product design.
Aylawadi’s paper works have been printed in magazines around the world and she’s also shown in a plenty of group and solo shows in Sydney where she’s based. Her work was also included in CODA Paper Art 2015. You can see more on Facebook.
