Cut paper illustration
This papercut piece illustrates the hierarchy of life in my neighborhood. The trees, cars, people, and wildlife compete for space, and the roots undermine it all. The intricate lacework of my layered papers illustrate both the fragility and the strength of the paper medium, as well as the fragility and strength of the environments that I depict.
I became interested in papercutting when I realized that so many cultures around the world, ranging from Eastern Europe and China to Mexico, utilize papercutting. My papercutting connects me to this extensive cultural heritage, as well as utilizing papers created in Asian countries where I have traveled.
