Hand Cut Paper Art of Lisa Rodden
Australian paper artist Lisa Rodden, originally from Sydney and now based in the Sunshine Coastcuts, slices, and folds thick layers of white paper on top of acrylic painting that is occasionally accompanied with text. The small geometric cuts reveal windows of paint creating a strikingly precise interplay of color and shadow. You can see many more examples in her paper gallery, and if you’re in Sydney you can stop by Art2Muse gallery from August 8-21 to see it in person.
“We as humans are lost without our connection to land and to one another, and the state of things around us is a reflection of that. The truth is that everything is inextricably linked and everything we do impacts something. For me, to create is to connect with truth, and through this I want to bring people a sense of peace and a sense of place.”
