Graphic printmaking. Drypoint on zinc and copper. The first print I made with the mice and tree wasn’t dark enough. I coloured it using watercolours, quite satisfied with the result. Yeah…and I have read Mouse Gard, so I guess I’m inspired by it.
This is the installation I made for the summer exhibit 2013 at Einar Granum. It mainly consists of motifs cut out in paper, which are illustrations of Little Red Cap by the Brothers Grimm. The paper (the story) grows out of the book and up the glass wall, creating a small fantasy world.
This was my second time working with paper cutting, and it’s something I would like to do more. And of course it was good motivation getting a student award for my work! 🙂
I was inspired to try out paper cutting art because I discovered the Danish artist, Karen Bit Vejle, by coincidence. She has amazing paper cut art! http://papercutart.no/
