The way Ingrid’s artwork is created is expressed remarkably by her spatial thinking capabilities. Only a few are as gifted as she is. The artist, living in Amsterdam, is an autodidact. By means of self study she became crafted in paper-architecture. This art form has its roots in Japan (developed by professor Masahiro Chatani).
Paper-architecture is best described as the art to form objects out of one single sheet of paper. By securely cutting and folding three dimensional forms are shaped. The basis of this cutting and folding is the design. This process can take weeks and even months of precise drawing and calculations even at a hundreds of a millimetre. The objects are designed layer by layer. A typical characteristic of Ingrid’s work is the complexity and high level of detail. Her designs are architectural as well figurative as abstract. It is not a surprise her artwork is internationally acknowledged.
