SAMI PETERSON twists and contours paper, then paints it with color. These Tangled Paper Ideas are massively textured and many-hued wall works that are in ways meant to be experienced over long expanses of time or multiple visits; not only does wrinkling the paper multiply the surface area, but the resulting peaks and crevices also seem to transform in the rotating light of day or as the viewer changes position. Brief interactions are part of the Ideas as well — one might feel overwhelmed at the impossibility of seeing everything.

Contact for commissions, collection, or to represent Tangled Paper Ideas in a gallery.
