Poppy a la Matisse
Henri Matisse began his practice of paper cutting while recuperating in bed. According to his biography he said that finding this art form had solved his lifetime search of expressing the essence of a subject – a graphic sculpture.
It is very hard for me to cut to the chase in my paper-cut designs. Showing every detail to define the subject seems, for me, more accurate.
But there is something to be said for learning from the masters.
