“I mostly depict animals in my art because I find I can give more emotion through them – there is a lot of variety and this is what I feel like making. I kind of stumbled upon cardboard because it allows me to create something that is very large-scale, which was really conveying what I wanted to convey – the power of those shapes of the animals I was representing.” – Laurence Vallières
Dalby agreed, adding that working alongside Vallières has been a great experience.
“Cardboard is a really magical medium to work in, taking the most lowly of materials and transforming it into something fantastic; I find it surprises people and ignites their sense of childlike wonder.”
