Given paper art has been around for a while, it is always refreshing to see different expressions of it evolve across the globe. We recently spotted incredible work from a very talented artist in New York.
With ingenuity and creativity clearly flowing through her veins, Maude White makes fantastic scenes and stories with intricate carvings on a medium she says is reliable and constant – a sheet of paper. From elephants, birds to faces and magical scenes, this paper-cutting artist’s work oozes a high degree of attention to detail and unique artistic flare we at Moody Monday love to see.
Maude explains that “By respecting and honouring paper for what it is, and not considering it a stepping-stone to something greater, I feel like I am communicating some of the pleasure it brings to me. I am not creating for Art’s sake. I am creating for Paper’s sake, to make visible the stories that every piece of paper attempts to communicate to us.”
