Another Post About Paper Cutting,

this one from Japan,

 where it is known as kirie or in Chinese as jianzhi (剪紙) and was first developed shortly after paper was first brought to the country in 610 AD. with arrival of the material, the incredible art of paper cutting has only grown more complex as the centuries go on, our previous post about paper cutting is here,

 continuing this great tradition is artist Nami Sakashita, with a sharp blade and a steady hand, she reveals long-form prose from a single piece of origami paper,

 one of her most recent creations is a passage from Lewis Carroll’s classic story, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,

this is the work in progress, if you’re near Tokyo in July, you can see Sakashita’s work in person at the Art Imagine Gallery from July 21 to July 25, 2017, absolutely stunning.
