Emma Scissorhands





Recently, a creative Australian elf sent me a lovely package filled with art and design news from across the globe. Melbourne artist Emma van Leest was among the young talents included. I'm completely enamoured with her chinoiserie-inspired work. The exquisitely detailed, dreamlike pieces above were done with synthetic paper, glue, and foam core. Visit John Buckley Gallery to learn more.

They are incredible. Thanks for sharing them.

Thank you for sharing these images. I love papercut art, especially the japanese art of kirigami. There are several artists doing interesting work like this, though Emma's work is particularly delicate and intricate. You might be interested in the work of Ingrid Siliakus as well:http://ingrid-siliakus.exto.org/

At any rate, these images, if enlarged and printed, would make very beautiful wrapping paper, I think!

Just extraordinary. I can't even begin to imagine the patience that this requires.
