Ray Besserdin Paper Sculpture Artist Gallery

Galleries, Museums and Collections Shopping and Markets

The Ray Besserdin Paper Sculpture Artist Gallery, now in its second year, is the only gallery of its kind in Australia.

It exhibits artworks in paper by Australia’s internationally award-winning artist, Ray Besserdin, the owner and operator. There are recurring themes of nature and human hands in mostly semi-abstract works created in the natural colour variations of predominantly white papers. These are Ray’s signature works through which he imbues such emotion, as comments in the visitors’ book frequently testifies, often leave a tear in their eye.

His love of nature is also shown through examples of work so realistic, they defy viewers to believe the art is made of paper.

Most visitors are astounded by the diversity of creations from such a beautiful and humble sheet medium as paper. The gallery is the result of almost 30 years of Ray Besserdin, delivering commissions world-wide to corporations, private art lovers, architects, interior designers; advertising agencies and other galleries. He has been recognised with 17 international awards including two of gold status from New York.

The gallery holds special exhibitions of Ray’s original artworks, most of which are for sale but there is also a range of premium quality merchandise on sale.
