Miriam Fitzgerald Juskova is a visual artist from Slovakia, living in Ireland over 15 years, who is known for her three-dimensional paper artwork. Miriam graduated as a Furniture Designer and has always been inspired by geometry and mathematics; subjects which run strongly in her family, with her mother and sister who are math teachers.
Juskova’s work, also known as Paper On Edge, is based on an old traditional technique of paper quilling. By combining art with her passion for mathematics and geometry, she introduces a unique visual art language. Each piece is created with a specific mathematical relationship, symmetry or sequence which results in mesmerizing architectural forms that come to life through Miriam’s clever use of colors, shapes and textures.
Each finished artwork involves hours designing, cutting, folding and securing paper, in order to achieve the required depth and movement. She approaches the process with a mixture of curiosity and precision - some pieces are created intuitively, while others are pre-designed with every single cut painstakingly measured.
