The Art of Paper Cutting

Paper cutting is certainly not a new medium, but Sarah Dennis’ paper cutting artwork has taken me be surprise. Her work has such beautifully delicate execution. Finished off by presenting each piece mounted in a shadow box, which I feel is perfect for this medium.

Unlike other 2D paper cutting artworks I’ve seen, Sarah leaves a bit of space between each layer of paper. This creates a shadow which gives her work lovely depth.

Sarah’s ability to take professional grade photos of her artwork, specifically highlighting the depth created with her technique, is commendable.
