The Art of Papercutting.

Incorporating three dimensions into a traditionally two-dimensional silhouette

was my contribution to the art form where traditionally all the imagery

lay next to each other. This was accomplished using patterns on fabrics

and overlaying objects with the patterns. I initially used this technique to add volume

to the figures and then further adapted it to add perspective to the silhouette.

That opened up further to create three-dimensional scenes by adding windows with

imagery inside and outside and layering multiple objects within a single silhouette.
