I recently stumbled across the works of hugely talented Sydney Anna-Wili Highfield. Anna-Wili creates stunning sculptures of animals with torn paper and copper pipe. The daughter of a puppetter, I suppose it's no wonder she has this amazing talent to create these creatures. She must have the patience of a saint, using cotton archival paper she paints it, tears it and sews it to create the figure of an animal. I just adore the really Australian Gallahs and Magpie's. After having made some simple paper maches for the maiden window at A shop called Moth, I tip my hat to this amazing talent. Good news people, Anna does take commissions.
