Rogan Brown’s paper sculptures depict complex scientific processes and organisms. The artist, as what he calls a “non-scientist” or “outsider,” attempts to reconcile and recreate the life of bacteria, the effects of quantum physics, and other true-to-life research, through his own singular creative sensibility.
“I am inspired by the incredible variety and complexity of the natural world that surrounds me,” says Southern France based artist Rogan Brown. Brown’s winter wonderland of intricately cut paper sculptures first caught our attention in 2013, when we featured his abstract formations of florals and pathogens, hand-cut out of watercolor paper with exquisite precision. His latest series, created throughout 2015, combines the techniques of hand paper cutting and laser cutting, leaving the burnt edges of the paper for added texture and depth to his already complex works of art.
