Paper Cuts or Making Art From Almost Nothing

My paper cuts are entirely made from old and often damaged books that were either given to me or bought cheaply from the local second-hand stores or were saved from the paper recycling bins.

Rummaging around in quirky second-hand stores or garage sale was part of the fun and brings back some pleasant memories from childhood. My father is an antique collector, and I grew up exploring with him people’s sheds, barns, back rooms and cellars for lost treasures. Often he brought stuff home that looked beyond repair – with lots of patience he would restore it to something amazing.

Each book I have carries its own story. Often when I look through the pages, I wonder about the person to whom the book once belonged. I wonder if they are still alive and what kind of life they have lived. Reading through the book, I sometimes feel some kind of connection with the owner or the author…or maybe I imagine it.
