Newspaper Pages Cut Like Embroidered Lace by Myriam Dion
Armed with a scalpel and latest edition of Le Devoir or the International Harold Tribune, Canadian artist Myriam Dion cuts rich textural patterns remeniscent of emroidered lacework right into the pages newspapers. Major design elements and photographs from the pages are often left intact or otherwise incorporated into her paper cuts, creating a strange element of harmony, as if the paper was always intended to look like this. It’s also amazing to consider that each tiny cut is made by hand, and yet more negative space is left behind than actual paper.By doing thousands of perfect cuts she creates a fascinating harmony, which reminds rather of pages of a storybook from another time than of a newspaper. Myriam is a canadian artist, currently working on a masters degree in visual and media arts at the University of Quebec.
