Aren't these contemporary papercuts by risa fukui amazing? The intricacy and skill of the crafting is undeniable, fluid line work and powerful movement give this work a rich depth. And then there's the unique use of color, black paper vs. white and dark, moody colors to create a distinct and surprising palette. Some of the subject matter is just plain gorgeous, other stories are far darker and more ominous. Which is to say that this artist's work pushes so many boundaries of what I've at least come to think of as papercutting. I love it when that happens!
