Arizona-based artist Travis Rice uses vibrantly colored shredded paper to create beautiful large-scale installations that impress and inspire. The richly textured installations by Rice are created from shredded paper that is woven together and hung from the ceiling of the gallery.

The overwhelming scale of the whimsical installations will cause the observer to pause and consider the unlikely nature of what they are viewing. The brightly colored hues of the paper reflect a lot of light, making them appear as if they could be constructed by straws or wool rather than paper.

Artist Travis Rice uses large-scale projects in neon colors in order to subvert the gallery viewer's experience to one of playfulness and simplicity.
