Aldo Tolino – Crumbled Faces

Aldo Tolino - art

Aldo Tolino is an Austrian artist and philosopher creating sculptural objects and human portraits. The artist has to do several steps to make the pieces you see here. The creative loop goes along the lines of shooting a portrait, printing it on paper, then creasing it, tucking it and folding it until a new facial expression is created before shooting the three-dimensional sculptural object for the final result. So the process seems to be very interesting – the more you rearrange the surface of the printed-portraits and the shape of the triangle grid, the more facial expressions you generate. Aldo skilfully portrays the geometrically folded objects, creating several portraits of the same person. He can generate absolutely different emotions and expressions out of one face. These faces serve to open a dialogue between sculpture and portraiture. The artist is currently working on a book project entitled “Interferenz” which precisely deals with the topics such as paper, folding, texture, image, object, recursion and sculpture.
