Often inspired by the afterimages of her dreams, artist Yuko Takada Keller creates visually striking paper sculptures that cascade from the ceiling. Whether forming geometric shapes and letters or taking on more abstract forms, her work occupies an ethereal realm of delicate details and whimsical thoughts.

Using pastel-colored triangle cutouts, which Yuko Takada Keller says "symbolizes something like a molecule," her sculptures also have a modern aesthetic to them. Likening tracing paper to skin membranes, Yuko Takada Keller explains that both reside between dream and reality in the unconscious.

Hailing from Japan, Yuko Takada Keller has been living in Helsinge, Denmark, since 1997, a year after she began delving into the art of paper sculptures. It was a time when she hoped her "works would remind the viewer of something pure and natural in this world."
