These Fragile Paper Cuts Reveal The Intricate, Swirling Forms Of Nature
Paper is one of those things we don’t think about much: we use it, reuse it, and recycle it. We essentially take it for granted. Yet, it can be quite a delicate thing to work with, and quite a versatile medium for intricate art, as these incredible paper-cut art pieces by Japanese artist Kiri Ken (ie. “cutting sword”) show.
Adapting themes from nature, Kiri Ken slices fragile sheets of paper into detailed shapes, lines and swirls, making it look like inked drawings. Jellyfish, nautilus, flowers merge and unify with human forms in a sinuous combination of wild and domesticated.
