Canadian painter, sculptor, and pattern-maker Andrew Ooi individually creases, unfolds, paints, and re-folds each piece of paper in his art by hand before assembling them all together. By combining color, pattern, and shape, Ooi creates a well-organized natural order.
“My art is about making sense of the world. It is about arranging the disparate shapes and elements I perceive environments, histories, geographies, art, artistry and human nature to be made up of into tangible systems and forms,” explains Andrew. “It is about occupying these realities, ideas and interests in feeling and being, to allow meaning and its significance in the long view, to develop measuredly.”
