Myriam Dion’s Carefully Cut Newspapers Resemble Lace

by Danny OldaPosted on

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.  These cuts become impressively intricate patterns of negative space.  It is affecting to consider that 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 that are delivered, read, and recycled daily.  Under Dion’s steady knife, a throwaway material becomes something quietly magical.
