Intricate Illustrations Cut Out Of Paper By Maude White
These beautiful intricate paper cuttings are the work of Buffalo-born artist Maude White. The talented artist, who also owns the Brave Bird Paperwork & Jewelry paper art and handmade felt jewelry company, transmits little gentle stories through her fragile paper cuttings.
Coming from a family of visual storytellers, she was fascinated by the various stories and ways of telling them that she experienced in her youth. The discovery of paper as a medium for her own visual stories came next.
“When I cut paper, I feel as if I am peeling back the outer, superficial layer of our vision to reveal the secret space beneath,” writes White. “I have great respect for paper. When I cut, the thin membranous material reveals its strength to me.”
“I feel that there are very few things in the world as reliable and constant as paper,” adds White. “Paper is everywhere and it has been telling stories for centuries.“
