Paper Cutting - Lisa Rodden

Not long ago a tweet led me to the website of Australian paper cut artist Lisa Rodden... in a word, wow! Here is just one example of her stunning work that combines hefty white paper with bright acrylic color and sure lines.

Lisa Rodden: Hand Cut Paper Works &emdash; Crane

The play of light and shadows brought about by the cut and curled slivers of paper bring a sense of motion to the piece. Judging by the number of glowing comments that have been left on Lisa's page, I'm far from alone in my admiration. The clean lines and seemingly simple designs are incredibly appealing, but of course they aren't easy to do at all.

See many more examples in her gallery including fish, waves, flowers, and flames. Lisa's work is on display in Sydney's Art2Muse Gallery 8 through August 21st.


On the ATP Facebook page this past week:

Make pretty crepe paper kanzashi
Brightest book covers ever
Creatives need to eat too! Quilled typography

I hope your weekend will be a fun one. Summer is supposed to let down its humid guard here for a bit... looking forward to that!

Ann thanks for the feature on Lisa's paper art. The lovely lines and the play with light is fantastic. I hope that I might get the chance to get down to Art2 Muse gallery before 21st August.
