The Paper Series by Lis Bailly

This series began with an image taken spontaneously of a stack of paper.
From an initial idea, I fold and manipulate a large sheet of paper, photograph it, and then colourize and enhance the composition. I am looking to bring out soft gradients, sharp edges, rich surface texture, and the illusion of depth and dimension. 
The creative process is more like painting an abstract – a convergence of traditional painterly approaches with digital technologies. The final art prints still retain their ‘paperness’, yet a transformation into another state has occurred.
