paper sculptures by Richard Sweeney into the new season’s window displays of Selfridges & Co
His experimental forms, using pure white paper have inspired the theme of “Paper” carried from the Oxford Street windows to throughout the store. Sweeney, defies categorization, pursuing the realization of form through the exploration of various media and techniques of manipulation.
“My interest lies in the manipulation of material, and how best I can preserve its nature while exploring form and volume. It is the tactile quality that drives me. I find it difficult to work with something unless I can hold it in my hands, touching and bending the material to feel how it behaves.” -Richard Sweeney
