Australian artist Emma van Leest cuts these from heavy paper, she's influenced by one of my old tutors, Jan Pienkowski. If you know his beautiful shadow illustrations, you'll see what caught her attention.
cut paper art made from a book Sarah Morpeth has made herself. Found on a British (I believe) site called Domesticali. Interesting discussion by artists about the deconstructing of books to create visual art, passionate pros and cons.
Emma van Leest is a paper artist from Australia. In her series Before the First Rain Emma uses only white paper cut outs in on an orange background. Emma finds her inspiration for the cut-outs in Chinese architecture and botanical prints.
