Pavlos makes the most unlikely objects from coloured paper. In the mid-1960s he began to develop compositions made from posters cut with a trimmer into strips, forming them into objects such as flowerpot, ashtrays, trees or hats. All manner of things, he found, could be interpreted through folding and curving strips of paper. He also allowed the paper freedom, particularly when forming the undulating contours of landscape or movement in large-scale installations of trees.
