These large scale, stunning works capture attention. Even though they appear extremely fragile, at the core of the painted and printed metallic leaf papers is sheer spun polyester, which makes them exceptionally strong and impossible to tear. These two works, where the varying size cut pages are held together with tiny pear pins, were created in 2017. Two new larger scale works are nearly complete and I will post them here soon.
