Ana Hagopian - Precious Paper


I play with paper, cutting and sticking to create volumes and shapes. My source of inspiration is nature and its infinite creations, its limitless colors, its surprising textures.















Paper is contradictory, provocative and humble because it is ephemeral. Using it as a material has its roots in the philosophy of arte povera, which restores the value of the idea, intuition, thought and the individual.






When I’m creating my works, I unconsciously seek primal contact, the constant wonder of childhood, the magical vision that transforms the prosaic and everyday into something new and marvelous.

My process is intuitive, through my hands I come into contact with the material, which guides me towards the final form.

 

 

Education

Fine Arts (University of Buenos Aires), 1981. Interior design (University of Buenos Aires), 1980. I moved to Spain in 1982 and after a while I started traveling to different countries in Asia and South America. In 1994, I started my first collections of paper jewelry, fruit of the collected experience of my travels.
