My current work is in the ancient art of papercutting. Papercutting has a rich cultural history, from Northwestern China in A.D. 400, Japanese Kiri-gami, kat’i in the Ottoman Empire and Jewish Mizrah. I use black paper (primarily Canson Mi-Teintes) and hand cut the paper using an X-acto knife often with the aid of magnification. I am experimenting with multiple layering of cut paper and with the addition of handmade papers as well.
