A few weeks ago I started working on a second paper cut installation made from the remaining seven foot roll of tyvek. It’s proving to be the most awkward thing ever to maneuver around and work on so my progress on it has been slow. This one will be composed of a series of intricately cut circles varying in size throughout the material.

The final photo here is where I reached as of yesterday. It’s going to take me a long time to finish this, but I am determined to see it through to the end.

Exquisite Lines opened at Katami Gallery last Thursday evening, and there were about fifty people who dropped by (WOW!) I took these photos at the end of the night so I could share them with people who can’t be there in person. The show is a selection of recent drawings, hand cut paper work, and laser cut bamboo pieces based on my paper cut work.
