CUT-OUTS

The paper cut-outs consist of hundreds of photographs about ice. Every photo has been cut out following lines and rhythm of the icy structures, thus creating a new image. The picture in the front side, either black-and-white or colored one, is an independent and entirely new work of art. The lacy white backside reminds of frost and snow. The shadow a cut-out casts on the wall create yet another layer in the work.
