Artist Profile

Benjamin Parker

Medium: Folded paper

Description:  Uncut sheets of paper to create intricate geometric origami designs

Benjamin Parker has been exploring the possibilities of folded paper since 2007. He works with a single uncut sheet to create remarkably complex patterns. He folds precise grid lines by hand to use as guides for intricate clusters of twists, which constrain the paper into a geometric pattern. Each piece is the direct result of Parker’s desire to experience the resultant form. Parker has displayed his work internationally and has published a book on origami tessellations, entitled Six Simple Twists: The Pleat Pattern Approach to Origami Tessellation Design. He has lectured and given workshops at several national origami conferences and artists’ collectives. He works daily at his studio in Manchester, Connecticut, pushing the boundaries of what can be done with patience and a single sheet of paper.
