Gallery: Simon Schubert's Ghostly, Creased-Paper Interiors

German artist Simon Schubert caught our eye at Boing Boing, who posted one of his papierarbeiten (“works on paper”) yesterday. Made solely by folding and creasing white paper, his renderings of buildings (mostly interiors) have a ghostly feel, their spare medium complemented by the absence of any living thing. According to his British gallery, Saatchi, Schubert is fascinated with “the concept of ‘disappearing’ — as a moral and psychological erasure” and sees the surrealists and Samuel Beckett as touchstones. We would add that his work reminds us of two more masters of disorientation, M.C. Escher and David Lynch (those zig-zag floors!). Sample some of Schubert’s work after the jump, and click over to his website for much, much more.
