Pin This!

Australian artist Miso creates the most captivating artworks from paper. She uses pin pricks and cuts to create an image as delicate as the paper from which it is made.

I especially love her work “New York Moon” where she used pin pricks to map her travels from memory. From a distance it appears like a rendering of the world, but as you get closer, you see that the shading is in fact pin pricks that mark out streets and suburbs, almost like a seductive Google earth!

I love that these works are essentially 2D sculptures that use negative space to create. There is something so serene and poetic about theses pieces, I simply adore them!
“Sculpting & carving back from paper, drawing by reducing the paper rather than adding to it, improvising as I go.” – Miso
