a love affair with paper…

The Bay Holiday Windows

If there is one thing I’ve loved as long as I can remember, it’s paper. It never fails me, it can be very cheap or very expensive and I like both. You can use it to blot a tear or your lips, you can write a love note to your beloved or more mundane tasks like a grocery list. A sheet of paper can hold mysteries, history or your future. With this being said, it won’t come as a surprise when I tell you I majored in fibers in college. There were countless long nights spent meticulously cutting, weaving, gluing and sewing paper and fabric. This experience has left me with a great appreciation for artists who work with this medium. Over the weekend I discovered Flurry and Salk’s custom paper art installations. Looking through their photos I am inspired and tempted to pull out my cutting board and exacto knife. The Paper-Cut-Project is currently on exhibit at Christie’s Auction House.
