Branching out

Cutting more tree limb/root-shapes out of watercolor paper. It's a bit of a painstaking and hand cramping process, but the result is worth it.

Paper cuts

Currently drawing and cutting lots of paper flora and foliage shapes for a potential wall installation to be shown in an exhibition next month. I've been very inspired by all of the blooms and greenery around the neighborhood among other things. I'm still working out how the final installation will look. I work somewhat intuitively, so I'm putting the pieces up on the wall as I go, but the work will be arranged to specifically fit the space once I start installing in the gallery.

A closer view of part of the piece with a few more additions as well as some sewn components.

Negative space from all of the cutting.
