I work with paper, cutting, tearing, slicing, and layering to create a semi-realistic image. It creates a painting like quality until you get close and see that the texture, depth, light and shadow are developed through the layering, texture and choice of colored paper.
This project was done to imitate the photographic quality of foreground, middle ground and background using only paper. A perched Klinglet on dogwood stems. Paper, gel medium, on canvas.
