Yuken Teruya, Corner Forest, 2006
First up is the work of Yuken Teruya, check their work out here www.yukenteruyastudio.com. Branches and leaves are intricately carved out of toilet rolls and hung on the wall. The artist says that this act "awakens it's (the rolls) ability to be an individual tree"
Anastassia Elias, Zoo, 2010
Then there is the work of Anastassia Elias. Find her work at www.anastassia-elias.com .
She cuts out the figures on a separate piece of paper, which is the same colour as the roll. She then sticks these delicate shapes inside the roll, manipulating them with tweezers. This gives the appearance that the figures are almost growing organically from the roll itself, clever stuff.
Amazing what an artist can do with the most mundane of materials!
