Paper Cut Silhouette

I started thinking about turning the Dice and Adicia ink on paper studies into papercuts. This was my first attempt at making a figure in black paper on coloured paper.

There is a certain charm to the crude cutting here. It convinced me that more work is needed to get a series of them off the ground and that perhaps the printing direction is going to have more longevity to it. So, with that in mind I’ve begun cutting out the collograph plates for the series, which I will get up once they’re  done.
