Corrie Siegel's papercuts at AJU

I'm not the only papercutter with work in the "Sacred Words, Sacred Texts" exhibition going on now through the end of December – Corrie Siegel (who also created the theme map artwork for the show) has some beautifully fragile pieces at AJU.

As she describes the work, "These cut paper works are created through overlaying text in a matrix to obscure the original message and reveal a pattern composed of symbols.The intricate detail work is inspired by micrographic texts by Hebrew scribes who sculpt, skew and stretch letters to create dynamic and textured compositions. Through using the form of a traditional Jewish paper-cut, these loaded texts are abstracted and cut into fragile lace."

You can see more of Corrie's work on her website.
