Cut and Fold
Through many iterations, the Cut and Fold series has utilized the principles of origami and mathematical sequences to create planar works with an acute presence. Shapes derived from the golden ratio are bisected along key axes in accordance with digits in the fibonacci sequence. These deliberate cuts create crisp folds in rigid steel plates.
Jerry Wingren’s ‘Cut and Fold Series number 13’ stands out for its playfulness and complexity. Two steel sheets painted white are made to resemble cut and folded strips of paper dropped casually on the ground. The negative spaces created are as tantalizing as the body of the piece, which remains a mischievous puzzle no matter how many times one walks around it.
