Sher Christopher’s captivating figural paper sculptures are a refreshing and unique artistic voice in the contemporary art world. She achieves a fantastic amount of detail with her unusual method, deftly slicing, cutting, and shaping paper to achieve a variety of effects.
For Christopher, working with paper remains a central part of the joy of creation. “Paper is such a beautiful medium to work with,” she explains. “It is diverse in its qualities and this presents ever changing challenges when working with it.”
Christopher brings to life an astonishing assortment of characters; hippies, magicians, merchants, and dashing socialites protrude from the wall and tickle the audience’s imagination. There is a certain thespian quality to the sculptures, the figures poised with props and stunning costumes, replete with manicured fringes, patterns, and stylish accessories. Hair and garments flow such that one may forget that they are looking at paper.
Sher Christopher was born in England and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Three-Dimensional Design. She exhibits frequently and works from her studio in Dorset County.
