I Hand Cut Thousands Of Paper Strips To Make Paper Carpets
I make paper art installations. I was inspired by my desire to do some unique art with simple material like paper.
This tapestry design technique involves hand cutting thousands of strips of colored paper and twisting them tightly around a thin wire to get paper curls. I then glue the papercraft onto hand-drawn patterns to make these works. The paper curls blend into one another, and a sophisticated paper tapestry emerges from thousands of these connections. This art technique is physically demanding but meditative and adds a layer of texture and visual interest to the works.
These paper artworks are detailed and reward close attention. My aim for myself and everyone else is to perform the difficult act of slowing down, both in making and consuming and really appreciate the beauty in small details.
