Artist Mary Button Durell

I have recently come across this sculptural artist who uses tracing paper and wheat paste as her medium. She builds pieces that structurally build up over time with layers and layers of paper.  Her main subject matter is light and translucency, biomorphic forma and patterns. For me i find it interesting that she is pushing the limits of this one material, in producing hundreds of works, all are different in shape and size, and she continues to transform the pieces, they almost look alien like and other worldly.
