Rogan Brown Kernal Detail
As my print making has come to a bit of a halt, I have been investigating some other areas of interest, and one of these I have found out comes under the heading of paper art. Where the paper stops just being a surface for my chosen medium to rest upon, but is the medium for the art to be made out of itself. I love this twist on things.
I have long been thinking of cutting out the shapes of my work, especially the grevilleas and I have gone part of the way with cutting out the last one from its failed background and intend to take this concept further. But investigating this I have found a whole new world of creativity, which just make me smile.
The amazing things that artists around the world are doing is so inspiring, so I thought I would share some of them with you and show you what is inspiring me at the moment.
One of the first Paper Artist I found was Rogan Brown and he has a number of these amazing works, the first picture is a close up of his work Kernal. The intricate details of his cutting and the layers that build up to his images are so elegant.
Kirsten Hassenfeld Paper Art Installations 4
These delicately lit installations by Kirsten Hassenfeld also blew my mind. I love that the paper essentially a two dimensional object has been made into a three dimensional creation and the adding of lights just takes it a further step. I want one!

I found this lovely paper sculpture lamp on a french blog, how ethereal and beautiful is this.
I love the sheer joy of this installations, and to think it is life sized.
Here are a few images I adore, but I can’t find who the artists are.
From a website catalog but no artist named
I could go on and on, but if you want to see more images you can visit my pinterest site for more images I have of delicious paper art. I have found pinterest very useful for gathering images for my work and you will find many other boards that I have for different projects and interests.
