While researching the artist for this morning’s post I checked PCNotes to see if I had already featured her here (awww, come on now, with more than 1,400 posts archived, you don’t think that I actually remember every artist that I feature, do you?) and I was surprised to discover how many posts I’ve already written about shoes.
I have to be forced to wear the darned silly things. For me, bliss is not having to wear shoes – and shopping for shoes? Not fun. Just ask my daughter (who would buy a pair of shoes every day if only her wallet would cooperate and magically produce enough money for that indulgence).
Yet I seem to be continually curious about the artful renditions I come across that pay homage to women’s shoes. Perhaps specifically because they are not meant to be worn!
I find Violise Lunn’s French paper twist on the artful shoe charming.
On her website, this sweet description of her passion for paper:
Finding perfect freedom in this material through sculpting figure silhouettes, angels and her favourite theme: shoes, she allows herself to play with otherwise impossible compositions. Sheer lightness and utter fragility combined with experimental reflection about what these objects represent, amounts to such almost untouchable objects, that they have instantly become collectors items.
