Ethereal paper birds from old maps and atlases | C. Brewster

Old and out-of-date maps and atlases are used as fabric to create intricate, delicate and detailed sculptures and collages that have been described as ‘exquisitely ethereal’ by the Financial Times. The sculptures are either pinned directly onto the wall as a large scale installation or captured in box frames. The shadows created when light is shined on them creates a dynamic three-dimensional quality and creates a feeling of movement.


Claire Brewster is a London based artist, grown up in Lincolnshire, but her work is exposed all over the world, living in Spain and Romania. She’s been pursuing art as a profession since 2000 and recently made the jump to work on her sculptures full-time.  Her work is inspired by nature and human’s neglection, as she states:
“Nature is ever present, even in the most urban environments, taking over wherever we neglect, living in a separate yet parallel universe. I take my inspiration from the natural environment, creating entomological installations of flora and fauna from imagined locations. My birds, insects and flowers transcend borders and pass freely between countries with scant regard for rules of immigration or the effects of biodiversity.”
