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
