Krystyna Burczyk Paper Art

Paper is my medium. By folding and twisting I transform rectangular sheets of paper into small pieces with spirals, that play important role in my works. They join my folded pieces into a strong final form with two levels. Spirals form an inner level and work against gravity, remaining parts forms surface level that decides shape and texture of an artwork. I have never used glue to join my pieces. I prefer “alive spirals” that work, fight and cooperate.

I rely on regular polyhedra structures, essential for the visual effect and the physical stability of my works.

In 2015-18 I realized an art project MAP (Math Art Paper) – the series of 16 exhibitions of my artworks at the Mathematics Department at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
