SIMON SCHUBERT IS A GERMAN ARTIST WHO FOLDS PAPER. He is better known for his large and visually powerful installations and sculpture. It is interesting for me to see an artist who can think in big terms, like the planning and execution of a large museum space and find equal comfort in sitting quietly with straight edge and burnisher to conceive these paper pieces. Subtle, quiet and delicate—these pieces have the ability to transport us with nary a pen, pencil, ink or traditional marking instrument.
