Paper Cut Work: Wind & Water Series (Part 2)

As mentioned in my previous post, I have two more works to share from the Wind & Water series. Here they are in all their crazy paper cut glory.

I built the series around the repeating pattern of a slender crescent shape, combining them into larger swirls, which in turn create an overall form. Each work is cut from a single sheet of white paper and mounted within a wood cradle panel.

I will continue to work on this series because I want to further explore layering the cut paper.

This work and more can be seen in my upcoming solo show, Currents of Nature. It opens this weekend at Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison Hot Springs as part of the 35th Annual Harrison Festival of the Arts.
