New paper cut works by Los Angeles-based artist Bovey Lee using single sheets of Chinese rice paper mounted on silk. Lee’s intricate compositions show human beings entangled in complex urban and natural scenes. The images are composed on the computer and the printed images are translated into "solid and void" patterns which she uses to hand-cut the paper without rulers or stencils.
My work is like drawing with a knife and is rooted in my study of Chinese calligraphy and pencil drawing. Cutting paper is a visceral reaction and natural response to my affection for immediacy, detail, and subtlety. The physical and mental demand from cutting is extreme and thrilling, slows me down, and allows me to think clearly and decisively.See more of Bovey Lee's work here.
