Cardboard artwork: Chris Gilmour

“Upcycle” and just got a whole new meaning.  Chris Gilmour creates realistic life-sized sculptures of everyday objects.  His attention to detail makes his work familiar and relatable to his viewers.  His medium of choice? Cardboard and glue.  Nothing else.  No supporting structure, no metal composition.  What was once disposable is now worthy of a glass case.  Cardboard re-purposed as artwork.  Who knew?
