“Let it Bleed” by Vally Nomidou

by DS

when i first came across the life-size sculptures by greek artist, vally nomidou, i became completely intrigued, not only by the translucent quality she used to create depth in her layering technique, but also by the depth of story each sculpture is trying to tell.

constructed mainly from paper, cardboard, wire, paper towels, newspaper, handmade paper, PVA medium, and white wood glue, nomidou does an excellent job bringing the viewers in and allowing them to complete the story for themselves. i began to wonder about their lives and how they became broken figures that nomidou so expertly sculpts.
