Paper cutting can produce intricate art by the most minimalist of means. Â Cutting snowflakes from folded sheets of paper is a holiday tradition–it’s easy to do and kids are amazed by the intricate and unpredictable patterns that emerge. But paper cutting is also a serious art form with a long history. One of the best practitioners today is Melbourne artist and designer Emma van Leest.
To launch our renewed Inspirations series, here’s a sampling of van Leest’s amazing (and evocatively titled) paper creations. Look close and you’ll even find some snowflakes in these cut-out landscapes!
To see more just click on any of the images to visit the artist’s website.
