This might not look like much at the moment but it is the start of something new in my Structured Chaos series. Up until now I’ve been working on paper 6″ x 4″ but this new development is on paper 12″ x 12″.
The plan is to have 15 layers of hand cut paper this new larger size. The artwork will not be fixed together with any kind of permanence in mind. The artwork will be re-layered, rearranged, and reimagined every time it is shown.
But like I say, it isn’t much at the moment. The cuts are the same size as the prototype and there’s more places for error. This whole artwork needs to be made without any mistakes. If I rush the cutting then I’ll wreck the whole thing and that’s not a situation I want to be in. Once I start getting tired I need to stop completely. The softly, softly approach is necessary if not vital.
