PAPER - tear, fold, rip, crease, cut

Noriko Ambe,
A Piece of Flat Globe Vol.4
The work i have been doing recently has been hugely  influenced by a book i was given for Christmas this year, called, 'PAPER - Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut' which talks about the fact that

"In the West, paper has tended to remain primarily a medium on which to write or illustrate, rather than an object in itself. Recently, however, the potential for the manufacture and manipulation of the material as an integral part of a piece of art or design has increasingly been explored".

The book looks at different artists who have used paper to form the bulk of their work.

Noriko Ambe uses hundreds of layers of cut paper built up to convay the 'nuisances of human emotions'.

The book aso looks at the site-specific, cut paper installations of Mia Pearlman, who cutes paper into flat drawings, and then pins them into huge 3D sculptures.
