Ana Bidart‘s sculptures resemble small geological models.  She wears away layers and layers of paper to create each piece.  Reminiscent of rolls of receipt paper or even toilet paper, her medium in this series usually has a particularly utilitarian purpose.  Her sculptures emphasize the objects’ more poetic characteristics.  Though solid and consistent in appearance Bidart exposes the many layers that form the whole.  Her work easily lends itself to various metaphors.
