Installation with sculptures from serie 2, cardboard boxes in acryl lacquer.
August Robin Peters. June 2019
Here are some pictures of my first series of sculptured cardboard boxes, build up in a composition. You can look at these installations as if you were looking at an abstract painting with different colors and dimensions. When you walk around they give a different sight depending on the way you look at them. To me that was something that was an extra gift, when I put the individually made forms together as one image. There is so much more to do with it, the possibilities are endless, like a lego set of stones.
I started to make these sculptures out of cardboard box material to satisfy my need to make a three dimensional form. I wanted to build a form, shape that could be interesting to look at and at the same time would not represent anything in the sense of a subject. In these pictures the cardboard sculptures are presented as a solo form but in a bigger scale I want to make a composition as if it was an abstract painting. The fascination for these forms origin in the fact that i collect tiny boxes and packing material. Most of the time I unfold them and study their forms as if it were patterns of clothing. By making small adjustments in the shape, by cutting it, building it with other parts, glueing it together again, another form starts to reappear and they begin to speak for itself.
