A yoga of tin snips

“Fable” was the most detailed and aesthetically pleasing piece of art I observed at the Texas Contemporary Art Fair over the weekend. Paul Villinski combined a cello, found aluminum cans, soot and wire with exact proportions and elegant organic curves to create “Fable”

“I am drawn to humble, yet evocative materials;… crushed…cans from the streets of New York – every one of them once raised to someone’s lips. My process of “recycling” them into images of butterflies is a quiet physical meditation, a yoga of tin snips and files and fingers”, Villinski said of his art style.
