paper sculpture : karen sargsyan

This week is all about creative things that my friends are up to. These images are from last month's exhibition at Ambach & Rice, my dear friends' gallery in Los Angeles. Aren't these sculptures by Armenian artist Karen Sargsyan just incredible?

The exhibition was titled Prisoners of Conscience, inspired by the story of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a political prisoner in Russia since 2005. Read more about Sargsyan's intention behind this work in the press release as well as more detail on Khodorkovsky's fascinating story.
