Cut Paper. ingres paper, rice paper, handmade paper, razor knife

The oldest surviving paper cut out is a symmetrical circle from the 6th century Six Dynasties period found in Xinjiang China. Since that time, cultures and artists from around the world have adopted paper cutting in their own right or as a tool for pattern stencils. Under the artist name ‘Circa’, I used paper cutting to explore themes in nature, surroundings and myths.
