Ray Besserdin www.papersculptureartist.com, born to artist parents, began his passion with paper in childhood, about the time he also become fascinated with nature. Graduating from La Trobe University in Biological Sciences, 1982, he immediately returned to his greater passion for art and soon began developing sculpture techniques with paper. Ray’s work ranges from miniature to gigantic, from abstract to ultra-realistic. His signature work is a style he terms “Impressionistic Sculptured Paper”, associating it with the painting style of that name because it is only loosely representative, and concerned with capturing emotive responses, not realism., “I want my work to speak to the viewers’ hearts”. Ray uses mostly handmade and mould made, sheet formed cotton and mulberry papers from Europe and Asia. Nature is still his most beloved subject matter.
Ray has been recognised both in Australia and internationally with around 20 awards, include two gold from New York, one for a Macquarie Bank corporate commission, a First in the Nature Exhibition of LightSpaceTime Gallery, Florida and was winner of the People’s Choice Award, National Works On Paper 2018, MPRG, Victoria. Corporate and Private commissions hang worldwide. In 2018 he was appointed the Australian Ambassador for Mondial Art Acadamie, France.
