Paper by Dragonfly
Ling Warlow is a self taught visual artist working primarily using paper as a medium to represent botanical forms through sculpture.
As well as found materials, Ling works with crepe paper, an incredibly versatile medium which responds well to colouration, shaping and moulding using a range of techniques. Creating a sustainable practice is central to the process and attention is paid to all aspects of the process from selecting materials through the dyeing process and even the adhesives used.
“I am driven by my life long passion for British wildflowers. The simplest flowers, which grow from a single seed, can take days – even weeks – to recreate accurately. By creating oversized sculpture I am enabling the viewer to see details hidden to the naked eye. My practice honours the natural process by exposing the complexity of the smallest botanical specimen.”
