Hey,, I am absolutely amazed.. Just fantastic Please visit my gallery and i hope you like it, its nowhere near the brillance of your work but if you do please do comment as i would love to hear your feedback.
This is absolutely breathtaking. I love the negative space of the skin on the face and neck and the extraordinary detail of the hair, almost like wild headdresses... Truly incredible.
I read that you have trouble choosing between a scanner and a camera, but for your work which is on thin paper, you could scan it by putting small pieces of thick paper hidden behind your gorgeous silhouette and a piece of blank paper so that you lift your silhouettes off of the page and create some shadow! It would definitely take some effort though.
Anyway, these are fantastic. I cannot wait to see more.
I see... that way the essence and the effect of paper-cutting is lost. It is sad. Another thing: Have you tried multi-layer art pieces? With your talent in paper-cutting that kind of work would be impressive and truly beutiful!
In my contry that technique is called "Arte FrancÚs". The literal translation would be "French Art" but nobody knows if it is really french. I have not found a great expositor of the technique in the internet and the ones I know do not have a web-site. This artist maybe is the best I can give to you: [link] . I would realy like to see 3D artworks from you!
I'd really love to say thank you for your information:That inspired me a lot!!!I'm going to try to have my work layerd..I think I'm gonna make 2 layers. One thing I'm concering about,is,,,what makes people touched about my work.As you see,my papercutting is all connected to one.I'm just wondering that do they still have people impressed when they are not in one... but multi-layer is a big challange for me.I decided to make cherryblossom one with that way. I can't make them 3D,but I hope they look better than now!
Your work already looks beutiful! Do not take away the value of your work. If you are worried about the presentation and loosing the feeling it produces in the people, you can still show them as separate art pieces... and then show how they create a new piece when combined. That way you still show the strongest part of your work: The connection of the piece. The unity! (Translator)
