Modern Paper Sculpture - Jen Stark

Primaries Invert

"It's not so much the fact that everyone uses paper, it’s the fact that you can take something that is so set in its ways and find unique ways of working with it." Jen Stark

Perhaps you've heard of Miami-based artist Jen Stark and have seen pictures of her mesmerizing paper sculptures. There's no denying the young woman has developed quite a name for herself in the art world in a relatively short period of time.

I was delighted to find the video that's located on the homepage of Jen's website. It's fascinating to hear how she began creating the particular style for which she is well known and to see the way she actually goes about cutting the many sheets of paper that compose each colorful sculpture. Yes, she makes all those precise cuts by hand!
