General Statement

I usually post on Facebook 2-3 times a week, onto both my own page here, and ‘our’ page set up by my wife Miri, here, which receives more traffic and thus generates more interactive comments.

Paul Jackson's Gallery

This origami museum gallery's artifacts are on Paul Jackson's website with many more of each type artwork artifact.

Organic model
Begun in the mid 1990’s, the Organic pieces are made from one folded, uncut sheet, usually without glue. The surfaces are made with dry pastel and a sealant. They are usually 15-25cm in the longest dimension.
One-Crease model
The earliest One-Crease pieces date from 1984 and represent my first significant departure from ‘model making’ origami-type techniques. The red and white pieces are made from wet-folded 400gsm watercolour paper. The yellow pieces are 80gsm copy paper and date from 1984.
Pixel Folds are a cut-fold tessellation technique, in which the back surface twists through many small cuts to be visible on the front surface. Thus, a photograph or image can be read from two-sides. The technique is explained in my book ‘Complete Pleats’.
Mirror Folds
Mirror Fold
Mirror Folds are squares or rectangles of paper folded only once or twice (in a special way!) and placed in mirror symmetry configurations. The effect is to create the illusion of large squares or rectangles that cross the collage. Some collages are made from solid materials and can be wall-hung.
Pleat Folds Pleat Folds
The technique is simply to pleat a rectangle of paper into 1/8ths or 1/16ths, then to pack the pleats together so that only the folded edges can be seen. This permits much experimentation with patterns of colour and print.
This is part of a series of pieces made for an installation in 2017. The diameters are between 40-95cm.
Modular and Geometric model
The collapsed pieces are true modular origami pieces, but without strength. They represent the Five Platonic Solids. The others are more conventional.
Pop-Up models
Pop-Up Models
Three series of ‘serial pop-ups’ exhibited in France, South Korea and Israel, representing the full sets of cut-fold possibilities given particular sets of constraints.
