This week I’ve been revisiting some of the recent paper cut work because a few of these have felt unfinished. Yesterday I reworked the concentric triangles paper cut I shared about a month ago, and added one more layer to its design.
The original version is pictured above. I’ve had it hanging in the studio for weeks and I started to feel it was a pretty dull piece despite the elaborate cutting. What it needed was another concentric triangle to complete the composition.
I worked from the top down, and this outer layer is thinner than the others because I didn’t have enough room for a thicker line. The bottom corners of the triangles are angled rather than straight for this reason, but I think it works.
The finished piece is 14″ x 17″, hand cut from a piece of archival Strathmore drawing paper. I can wait to get it framed and let it really shine.
