Description

‘Simon the Sloth’ was created as a result of my love of sloths and I felt it necessary to make one. I (like many people) have spent far too much time in a zoo watching a sloth slowly make its way across a branch with a ridiculous smile on it’s face. There’s something about this docile creature that makes me happy. When I made this piece, I really wanted to replicate that daft smile which I hope will bring joy to viewers as well as capture the sloth’s uniqueness and beauty.

To create this artwork, I precisely cut, ripped and manipulated different types of paper (mostly wallpaper) and layered it up piece by piece to make each strand of fur. ‘Simon the Sloth’ is peering out from amongst the leaves of his natural home. For the background, I cut different leaves from multiple wallpapers and built them up to give a suggestion of a rainforest habitat adding vibrant and tropical colours to the artwork.
