Myriam Dion’s Carefully Cut Newspapers Resemble Lace

It may be safe to say that Myriam Dion is a patient artist.  The Canadian artist carefully cuts away a mass of tiny pieces from the pages of newspapers.  The cuts become impressively intricate patterns of negative space.  She transforms existing images simply by delicately taking pieces away.  Dion further transforms the mundane into something special.  Her preferred medium is newspaper - stacks of paper delivered, read, and recycled daily.  Under Dion's steady knife, a throwaway material becomes something quietly magical. Check out more of her work after the jump.
