French artist Andree-Anne Dupuis Bourret creates massive textured paper art installations that take over entire walls and floors of rooms in galleries.

Impressively dynamic, even the art constructions that are adhered to the walls have a sculptural appearance with their complex origami folds and shapes. Staying fairly monochromatic, the art incorporates white and black paint to add shading and dimension, coating the delicate paper peaks with a glossy sheen for a plasticized look.

The intensity of this series, entitled 'Matricielle,' has the appearance of a highly infectious mold that is slowly but surely taking over the gallery space, growing out of the ground and spreading all over the walls. Bourret's textured paper art installations utilize origami techniques to add dimension to the multifaceted designs, bringing life to the crystallized sculptures.
