Chris Ede has created this piece for David Attenborough's Natural Curiosities, a new TV series aired on the Eden channel. The art, commissioned by Red Bee Media has been in the Guardian as an A3 fold out poster, and in many major newspapers as a standard advertisement. Trine Johnson, producer at Red Bee Media says: "It was an absolute pleasure to work with Chris on this project. He was full of great ideas and suggestions and he worked tirelessly to get the piece right." Chris Ede is represented by Illustration Ltd
Gail Armstrong exceeds herself with these shoebox sculptures for Stonefly in Italy.
The brief was to create two different environments which appear to have developed and unfolded from the shoeboxes themselves, one summery and rural, the other youthful and active. Gail built the pieces keeping in mind that they may be animated in the future, she says of the commission; "The trick with the images was to use multiple layers of paper bonded together where the sculpture had to look convincing as a cardboard shoebox, and single layers of paper where the sculpture required depth and form."
