A fascinating series of paper portraits and sculptures by New York sculptor and filmmaker Nick Georgiou. These are some of his pieces currently shown at the temple of music and art in Tucson Arizona.

Mr. Georgiou has exhibited work in SoHo and London, has been featured by the Wooster Collective, and was commissioned by the Oxford University Press to create a permanent, large-scale paper installation in their Manhattan office.  His sculptures regenerate natural source material, infusing it with layers of literal and metaphorical meaning in a style that is distinctively his own. Each paper sculpture is hand carved and textured so as to encourage interaction with the viewer.  As our culture steadily moves away from paper and the printed word, Georgiou rescues the “relic” of the 21st century: the printed word, and tells their stories in a new and engaging way.
