Newspapers X-Acto Knifed Into Gorgeous Lace Patterns

Canadian artist Myriam Dion transforms everyday newspapers into gorgeously patterned hand-cut pages. She uses an X-Acto knife to carve into the paper, producing repetitive decorative designs that mimic the open holes on lace fabric.

In each piece, the words become abstract snippets of letters, images are accompanied by swirling lines and leafy patterns, and bits of photographs are left untouched to create an interesting blend of reality surrounded by ornamental embellishments. All of the latest news, politics, sports, and entertainment around the world become obsolete as the delicate carvings consume the pages.

Dion carefully slices around the name of each newspaper, offering her viewers a bit of context by displaying legible locations and dates, and each piece is reminiscent of a large tapestry, filled with visual stories of recent current events.
