Gabriel Schama’s Mandala-Like Paper and Laser-Cut Wood Relief Sculptures

Oakland-based artist Gabriel Schama creates 3D work using techniques that allow him to play with rhythm and texture. He works with laser-cut wood in his monochromatic pieces and hand-cut, layered paper in his colorful ones. The resulting abstract compositions pulse with undulating, organic shapes and mandala-like structures. With their focus on pattern and geometry, his works are satisfying to look at yet tempting to touch because of their texture. For his next projects, Schama is experimenting with leather, plywood, and acrylics. Take a look at his recent work below.

Lucila Biscione creates surreal scenes with paper, ink, and pencil, with lush backdrops and roaming creatures. The Buenos Aires-born, Berlin-based “papercut" artist primarily uses muted tones in the works shown here, adding to worlds that appear either ancient and lived-in—further underscoring their fairytale quality.
It's a warning sign at art galleries and museums around the world: "Don't touch the artwork." But one artist based in Laguna Beach, California wants you to do just that. Andrew Myers creates mixed media works with screws, oil paint, charcoal, bronze, cement, and found objects. "Distinct", "expressive" and "tactile" are words he uses to describe his portraits made of thousands of screws (a single piece can use up to 10,000 or more), where touch is important to experiencing the work as it brings the subjects to life with volume and texture.
