A Whole New Level of Paper Art by Bovey Lee

Paper is perhaps one of the most common art medium. You can make marks on it, you can fold it into fantastic shapes, you can dye it, you can make paper mâché with it, and you can cut it. The possibilities are endless, but when it comes to making art out of paper cutouts, Bovey Lee is in a league of her own. The simplicity of the tools she uses belie the delicacy of her work. Bovey uses an X-Acto knife to cut out fragile, lace-like designs out of single sheets of Xuan rice paper. Her art is heavily influenced by the steady urbanization happening in China.
