Paper cuts

Green-head-1There is something about paper cutting that intrigues me. I think it is the precision needed. The scalpel that must be true. This one, Green Head,  by Elsa Mora is then photographed in such a way as to cast soft shadows and create a less defined profile. The combination of the precise lines and the more blurred is appealing . I like the Adam and Eve -like figures. This was created to illustrate an article in a Canadian magazine.

The artist is an illustrator, creating art by commission for mass media audiences.

Paper cutting is used here in a print advert.0016_right_to_write_poster_a2-03_aotw The 3D effect suggests a fingerprint.
