Paper Sculpture by Eloise Corr Danch

Eloise Corr Danch was one of the first paper flower artists spotlighted on the blog back in 2009. A recent email about Flowering, a new show at Nancy Margolis Gallery in New York City that features a floor to ceiling column of Eloise's multi-colored blooms along with floral works by seven painters, prompted a catch-up visit to her website... she's been busy since that earlier post!

While Eloise focused on painting and illustration early on in her career, now she mainly creates three dimensional paper flowers, dresses, and props for a variety of clients and publications. Enjoy these examples...

Store window displays that feature paper art are a favorite of New York City visitors.

This is just one of the remarkable historical paper dresses Eloise has made. It was on display at Slash: Paper Under the Knife, a 2010 exhibit at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City.
