The pictures here, these photos here are remarkably poor
I think they were taken in a matter a 3 seconds plus two more
I made these paper cuts maybe last year, I'm not quite sure...
I had been a guest at someone's house and I was very bored and in the kitchen I found an index card and scissors. Working around the edge of the index card I created a series of images.
IN this case it were witches I had scissored snaking about the card. I think I was at a party with a bunch of women. As I said, I was very bored....and as I was not allowed to have a cigar and there was no chocolate...I think that may explain the subject matter at the time.
Well, after returning home with the card in my pocket that led me to thinking of doing some paper cutting with silhouettes. I am a big fan of silhouettes.
I wanted to work with the color of the paper, negative space and silhouette.
I played around with some colored paper and just tackled some fairy-tale themes in my mind...of course the images were part of little stories I was writing.
I had no idea what I was going to do with the paper cuts when I was done with them.
I ended up just tossing them into some frames and there they hang on a wall.
I will get back to doing more with cut paper silhouettes at some point.
Currently, I am still working on the writing, editing and painting of the poem Toussaint the Teethy.
