The Intricate Cut Paper Collages of Elise Wehle

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

“Every day I spend so much time in front of a glowing screen that sometimes I forget I possess five bodily senses and not just one or two. Making art makes me conscious of my hands again,” writes Elise Wehle in her artist statement. The repetitive action of folding an cutting makes her creative process a sort of meditation — a way to cultivate a sense of being present in the moment. Wehle works with found photographs, prints and her own original drawings, subtracting elements with a blade to create delicate constellations of negative space within the images. Take a look at some of her work below.
