Stripped Down

This artwork by Nathalie Boutté simply awed, amazed, and inspired me:

She recycles paper strips into these simple, yet obviously complicated, images:

I have some leftover strips of washi hanging around the office, literally, strips. I mean, tiny strips.  But let’s not give anything to waste. So, if anyone is willing to up-cycle and create something beautiful with it, give me a ring!

Nathalie's paper strips

Merci, Nathalie!

    Great offer…I teach art and could use paper of any kind. I teach printmaking and encaustics I have started using recycled pieces of paper embeded in wax.
    Thanks for sharing…..
