Paper Cuts and Paper Cuttings

It's been a long day, so I will just point you to some people who do really weird, amazing, and beautiful things with paper and a pair of scissors: + Patrick Gannon - he reminds me of the visceral violence of the Brothers Grimm mixed with the Gothic fairytales of Angela Carter and the more outlandish aspects of Studio Ghibli. Scary and eerie. + Rob Ryan - 1950ish-inspired bright, simple shapes featuring quirky lettering. Poor page layout though (I don't like embedded tables). + Elsita - quite folksy, purposefully naive paper scultptures that remind me of 18th-19thC Russian/Eastern-European folk art. + Peter Callesen - paper installations preoccupied with the classic dichotomies of life/death, culture/nature etc. Stunningly executed.
