The Hand Cut Paper Art of Lisa Rodden

Beautiful and creative paper art by talented Australian artist Lisa Rodden that creates unique patterns and designs were hand cut into layers of stacked paper. Check out how small geometric cuts reveal windows of paint creating a strikingly precise interplay of color and shadow.

Artist describing her work:

“There is a grace and beauty in fish that you cannot find in anything else. The slow, fluid motion as they glide through the water, fins and tail rippling softly as they go. They’re hypnotic, even healing, to watch. In Japanese (and Chinese) culture, the Koi represents courage, strength and perseverance, among other things. There is a tale about the brave Koi that swims upstream against the strong currents enduring many hardships and overcoming many obstacles. Finally it reaches the waterfall and as it jumps through it transforms into a magnificent dragon symbolising advancement and aspiration.

This work offers hope through strength. It is a reminder that with perseverance and patience we are able to work through the hardships in life to emerge stronger, wiser and better for it. It is also a work in peace and flow allowing the mind to wander and to daydream which should be given as much priority as food but is usually dismissed.”
