Paper Art Never Looked Better

It requires talent to draw with a pencil or paint with a brush, but it needs more than a unique talent and ability to make art out of white paper. Maude White is an artist who turns paper cuttings into masterpieces using only a craft knife. Her detailed hand work consists of very thin lines that represent images that inspire one to dream.

Between these swirling and bending lines, she creates stories, not just simple carvings. In any of her work, paper often stands for the negative space; she believes that these carvings represent the peeling of a superficial layer and the revealing of the hidden space beneath. Some of the artist’s carvings represent a series of art with one standing theme such as “The Water Is Wide.” The exhibitions of the artist always consist of various illustrations that communicate to the observer stories and information in a form that overpowers words.
