Magic Circle is a unique contemporary modern sculpture paper relief by UK artist Rogan Brown. The relief is composed of uncountable layers of laser and handcut paper elements, which are stacked using foam board spacers. This floating effect allows the artist to build a complex colony of organisms that appear to grow beyond the confines of their housing.
The architecture of this piece is somewhat constructive, ordered, there are colonies of intricately shaped forms that evoke the collaborative, constructive network of a coral reef. It also evokes microbes and diatoms. The art work is mounted inside a bespoke shadow box with a neutral white background. The shadow box allows the three-dimensional work to be seen from all angles, at the same protecting it.
