Biography of Ingrid Siliakus (1955)
Paper (Origamic) architect/paper artist
Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Something like 12 years ago, Ingrid Siliakus discovered
paper (Origamic) Architecture by seeing work of the originator of this
art form Prof. Masahiro Chatani (architect and professor in Japan). He
developed this art form in the early 1980’s. Ingrid was instantly
fascinated by the ingenious manner in which these cards were designed
and by the beauty they radiated. Ingrid studied the originator his work
for some years and than started to design herself.
Ingrid states that creating these cards have given her personal means of
expressing. Her specialties are buildings of master architects and
intricate abstract sculptures. Her source of inspiration by these
abstract sculptures is works of artist like M.C. Escher. With buildings
she feels attracted to work of Berlage and Gaudi. Her work has been
exhibit and is being sold in The Netherlands and beyond.
The distinction between pop-up cards and paper (Origamic) architecture cards is that in pop-up cards a model is - usually - folded out of more sequences of paper. With Paper (Origamic) Architecuture however, an object is cut out of a single piece of paper. It is done by a combination of detailed cutting and folding. To design a pattern from scratch, the artist needs the skills of an architect to create a two-dimensional design, which, with the patience and precision of a surgeon, becomes an ingenious three-dimensional wonder of paper.
