Artist's description:

Modern Art is Rubbish! Seven Brothers for Seven Brides

This work has been inspired by a television programme aired earlier this year “Who’s Afraid of Conceptual Art?” (see below) and the work by Martin Creed work No. 88 “A Sheet of A4 paper crumpled into a ball” (1995)

Martin Creed Link:
Instead of representing a “Ball” I am representing the “Human Body” in the form of a paper “Ball”

This has been inspired by the film "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" (1954) and inverted to "Seven Brothers for Seven Brides". The Seven Brothers is made of Seven identical sizes of A4 Paper, hand crumpled by the Artist. The Brothers may look identical, same size, but during the process of forming them they are different, as have different creases, folds, etc., just like the Brothers in with their initial name Alphabetically order, A to G, they have their own characters, and slightly different. Similarly, opposite these are Seven Brides, identical sizes of A5 Paper (half the size of A4 Paper), hand crumpled, but slightly different.

But my Child could have made that?

Yes, But he/she didn’t and wouldn’t be able to recreate the work. In the work I’m exploring “Identity” of the Artist, and Finger Prints are unique to me, and are contained in sweat particles, when I create the work, crumpling, I leave Finger Prints on the Paper, so No, you Child would Not be able to recreate this!

The below is the text in the Artist Blog (

The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) has launched mini-series programmes on television exploring “Conceptual Art” on BBC4 in the UK. The programme was aired yesterday and is entitled “Who’s Afraid of Conceptual Art?”. The majority of my work is based around the Concept (or Idea), and I thought I share the link below, as it gives a useful insight introduction into Conceptual Art. Some may say that Conceptual Art maybe pretentious to the untrained eye, as it can be difficult to understand, to the outsider, but the majority have a concept or idea behind each work, that once you understand the logic behind it becomes easier to understand. The introduction is useful as explains that Art has moved on from traditional arts and now includes objects, such as ready-mades, and anything could be classified as Art by the Artist today.

It highlights a few of my favourite Artists, that have inspired my work, Martin Creed, Marcel Duchamp, Michael-Craig Martin, Sol LeWitt, Robert Montgomery.
