Brilliant Backlit Paper Sculptures by Hari & Deepti

As part of a new exhibition at Black Book Gallery in Denver, artists Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker(aka. Hari & Deepti), have created a new body of work titled “Oh, The Places You Will Go!” The artist couple were inspired by recent travels through Moab, Utah and Yellowstone, Wyoming, and transformed elements of their adventures into delicately hand-cut paper sculptures infused with mythology and science fiction.

Each piece is lit from behind or below with LED strips and the boxes are exhibited in dark rooms to enhance the effect.

Most recently Hari & Deepti completed a commission for Neil Patrick Harris titled “The Magicians Hat” inspired by the “Rabbit in the Moon” legend, shown below. They will also have work on view at Art Basel Miami 2014 with Scope International Contemporary Art Show.

You can see several more of their recent light box sculptures at Black Book Gallery and follow their ongoing work on Instagram.
