Amazingly Detailed Hand Cut Paper Art

Australian artist Lisa Rodden has a certain grace when it comes to hand cut paper art. Each one of her delicate pieces is the result of a lot of planning, precise cutting, folding, and proper layering of paper and paints. Many of her works relate to the beauty of the world around us that, she believes, we are often too busy to appreciate. She says, “How much do we miss out on because we don’t take the time to learn or to listen or to look? But beauty is always there lying dormant, waiting to be discovered.”

To form these unique artworks, Rodden cuts small sections of thick white paper and bends them up to reveal bits of color underneath. Depending on perspective and how the paper bends, the light and shadow on the piece can move and change. The three dimensional pieces are tactile sculptures with subtle details that provide an enriching visual experience. Rodden says that her work is “a communication of how all things are interrelated, with organic forms, textures, color and flow being her signature. This approach brings a richness and complexity to a multitude of styles.”
