Between books, cuts and imagination

Su Blackwell‘s work caught my attention for the details and delicacy. But I didn’t realize how deep was the meaning… as her words:

”For the cut-out illustrations, I tend to lean towards young-girl characters, placing them in haunting, fragile settings, expressing the vulnerability of childhood, while also conveying a sense of childhood anxiety and wonder. There is a quiet melancholy in the work, depicted in the material used, and choice of subtle colour.”

Paper is one of my favourite materials. I always working with origami and book binding since child, and that’s why Su’s pieces have such value for me. A real body of work absolutely gorgeous.
