The Hand Cut Paper Art of Lisa Rodden

July 11, 2012

Christopher Jobson

…Australian paper artist Lisa Rodden cuts, slices, and folds thick layers of white paper on top of acrylic painting that is occasionally accompanied with text. The small geometric cuts reveal windows of paint creating a strikingly precise interplay of color and shadow. You can see many more examples in her paper gallery, and if you’re in Sydney you can stop by Art2Muse gallery from August 8-21 to see it in person. (via yellowtrace)…

Anatomical Cross-Sections Made with Quilled Paper by Lisa Nilsson

February 1, 2012

Christopher Jobson

For her Tissue Series, artist Lisa Nilsson constructs anatomical cross sections of the human body using rolled pieces of Japanese mulberry paper, a technique known as quilling or paper filigree. Each piece takes several weeks to assemble and begins with an actual photograph of a lateral or mid-sagittal cross section to which she begins pinning small rolls of paper.

Paint Splotch Embroidery by Olya Glagoleva and Lisa Smirnova

September 7, 2016

Kate Sierzputowski

While working in the studio, paint is bound to drip, splatter, and brush up against an artist’s clothes, transforming a studio uniform into a chaotic collection of attractive mishaps. Designer Olya Glagoleva in collaboration with Russian artist Lisa Smirnova (previously) captured this look with an elegantly designed twist. All of the clothing included in their collection is embroidered in the style of Smirnova, with the markings of…

New Quilled Paper Anatomy by Lisa Nilsson

February 2, 2013

Christopher Jobson

Paper artist Lisa Nilsson (previously) recently completed a number of new anatomical pieces using her profoundly incredible skill with quilling, a tedious process where paper is tightly wound into small rolls and then assembled into larger artworks. The natural formation of the paper coupled with Nilsson’s ability to identify the precise materials to mimic organic structures makes each artwork appear uncannily like actual cross-sections…

Astonishingly Dense Quilled Paper Rugs by Lisa Nilsson

November 6, 2014

Christopher Jobson

These astonishing renderings of symmetrically designed carpets are the beginning of a new paper sculpture series by artist Lisa Nilsson (previously) who arranges quilled strips of hand-cut mulberry paper at remarkably small scale. The new paper works are a departure from her earlier exploration of anatomical cross-sections and show a marked leap in her nearly unbelievable vision of paper quilling, something All Things Paper’s Ann Martin…

Lush Hand-Embroidered Portraits by Artist Lisa Smirnova

December 16, 2015

Kate Sierzputowski

Artist Lisa Smirnova hand-embroiders colorful works that appear like delicate colored pencil drawings, appropriate since she couples the craft with a dedicated drawing practice. Her works on cloth depict both the anonymous and famous, stitching renditions of Frida Kahlo and Charles Bukowski along with images of tattooed men, rabbits, and a lush floral arrangement punctuated with a human heart. Using thread, cotton, and wool her works can take…
