“Creators: Sue Beatrice and Andy Gertler
Medium: Recycled cardboard boxes, paper bags, wood and glue.
Like many of you, we accumulate tons of boxes from shipments of online purchases. The forms are all made from cut boxes and the surface is covered with torn bits of paper bags. This sculpture was created without making paper pulp. It’s all just cut cardboard assembled using hot glue and Elmer’s glue. It was built from the inside out starting with basic forms made from cardboard and layering on the musculature and then the fur.”
