Marco Maggi

Intricate and delicate, Marco Maggi’s work unfolds before the viewers’ eyes and requires an almost microscopic level of attention. In Discrete Geometry, like much of his work, Maggi uses an X-ACTO knife to meticulously cut paper and then fold, curl, or bend it into small sculptural forms. The piece conjures the look of scientific diagrams, circuit boards, and cityscapes, though in the end it remains an abstracted visual language, beautifully created with nothing more than a sheet of paper. Maggi’s work has been exhibited internationally, and in 2015 he represented Uruguay in the Venice Biennale. Maggi’s work is currently featured in the Paper into Sculpture exhibition at the Nasher Sculpture Center.
