For me, there is something captivating about the fragility of any kind of art created out of ephemeral mediums like ice, sand, moss, chalk or – in the case of Mademoiselle Maurice – origami paper. That the artist knows their work is a temporary part of the environment seems to make it particularly special.
Through her work, Mademoiselle Maurice seeks to turn the outside world into an open air museum, one where her works are created in a way that communicates positive emotion in a purely subjective manner. She wants to brighten our lives, and I reckon’ she achieves that!
What do you think?
Mademoiselle Maurice works with different mediums – things such as origami, lace, photography, or painting and embroidery. For me, her works are a little naïve yet at the same time joyful. The images of her rainbow origami make me smile.
