Wanderer/Wonderer: Pop-Ups by Colette Fu

Inspired by eerie historical sites in Philadelphia and life and culture in China’s Yunnan Province, the land of her ancestors, Colette Fu creates complex pop-up book sculptures that combine images of people, architecture, and elements of the natural world. She engages passionately with myths, legends, and folklore. The drama of her subjects is matched by her powerful imagery and exceptional engineering skills that take the art of pop-ups to new heights. Although Fu’s books are motionless, their exuberant shapes, intense colors, and closely interwoven pop-up pages convey the impression of being alive. Her themes are largely inspired by her personal experiences, but her art also embodies—and inspires—feelings of joy, sorrow, and curiosity experienced by all of humankind.
