Paper Cut Work: Concentric Circles

I’ve been working on this paper cut piece for the last week and just finished it today. I was inspired to make something with concentric circles after exploring ideas for a recent commission of a series of small pieces. This one is personal work for an upcoming show.

I took a few photos as I made progress, and kept wishing I could’ve shot a timelapse of the entire process. I will do this with a future piece with a bit more planning.

The finished paper cut design is backed here with red paper to better show off the line work. This is cut from a piece of 14″ x 17″ Strathmore drawing paper in medium weight, and the diameter of the circles is 12.25″.

More work from this series can be seen here and here.
