Rad Paper Cuttings

Sunday, December 19, 2010 · 4 Comments

3-D paper cuttings by Simone Lourenco, originally from Rio de Janiero. Lourenco currently has work in Miniatures! at Brooklyn gallery, Art 101.

I found her work on Brown Paper Bag where Sara aptly describes Lourenco’s work as “intri­cate sys­tems and designs from a sheet of paper, lay­er­ing and devel­op­ing what looks like liv­ing organisms.” Unlike other artists working with paper, Simone deliberately overworks the material, pushing it as far as she can. The effect is compelling: these pieces are messy and chaotic like the depths of an overgrown jungle.
