Hello my friend!
This is the first piece of a group that I will be sharing with you in this blog, I am still taking pictures 🙂
They are all for my solo show at Couturier Gallery here in Los Angeles in Sept 2009.
Is there any idea that comes to your mind about the meaning of this piece? I would love to hear what you think 🙂
wow, you make beautiful paper-cut crafts…so intricate and very artistic. you are amazing.
The only idea that comes to my mind is that it’s absolutely breathtaking. (And I got my perfect little papercut in the mail–thank you SO much!)
It is so beautiful but so sad! As if there is a great loss somewhere in their lives.
I would love to see you papercutting on YouTube just to see how you do it. How long do these take to make?
Btw, it is good to see you back!
Thank you Susan and Bel!
Melissa: I am so happy to hear that you got your little papercut!
Janine: I can’t wait to make a video of myself cutting one of my paper pieces, I have been looking for a way to do it. Maybe I will end up doing it myself, it is hard to find someone to hep me with this 🙂
What I see is, Loss of Innocence.
Oh, I’d love to see a video too.
God Bless You and Yours and
Your Creative Life!!!
Beautiful. Like Flassie, my first reaction was loss of childhood/innocence. Something terrible that is making her grow up too quickly. One of the things I LOVE about your work is the juxtaposition of the delicacy and beauty of the cut paper with the (often) darker effect of the imagery. I’m not expressing myself very well, but I just wanted to express how much I adore your work!
The bird mother is sad, because one of her baby birds was killed through the thoughtless cruelty of another. (I spend a lot of time looking out my window at the bird feeder. Now is the time of year when I see the tiny, thin mother birds feeding the fat and fluffy baby birds. Mothers will work themselves to the bone taking care of their babies.) You made a very powerful piece of artwork.
I think is a mom that is very very sad for her little son, and wants to protect him because he seems fragile…
and the world looks so dangerous!
I love this papercut so much, I admire you a lot Elsita *_*
I see growth, pain beyond control, life and death. So beautiful. I hope to see you on youtube.
Elsita, what comes to mind is that they are soo sad….all the characters are grieving, but the vines are still growing…
God, I am so impressed! All of your interpretations are amazing. Each one makes me think a lot, each one is like a little door to a world that I want explore.
Thank you so much!
I see a mother (bird) whose heart aches because she wants to keep her children protected from the danger and hurt in the world, but this is just not possible, and in life everyone has to experience hurt, pain and grief in order to grow.
Just wonderful! Congrats on the show
Such an amazing piece. I see a bird that wants to fly…and a girl that is earthbound…dreaming of flying.
I Am Bird Now (Antony and the Johnsons) … crying, heart, love, strange, childhood, almost, always.
The anthropomorphic bird.
A bird that is trying to disguise itself as human in order to save its habitat, which it is surrounding itself with. The bird is sad because it has seen so much destruction of its kin and its home.
It had decided to dress as a human after witnessing the sadness of a little girl who cried for the loss of one of its baby birds.
Seeing the back is as compelling as seeing the front!
Fantastic. It’s very cute.
I am new to your site, and is still discovering piece after wonderful piece! This particular piece reminds me very much of a beautiful and sad Swedish song called “Min Längtan”(=”My Longing”). The singer’s “Längtan” is a shy and strange bird that eventually gets shot down by uncaring and uncomprehending humans – attacking anything that flies high and out of reach.
How often have not dreams been crushed by persons who lack the ability to see the value in them? Is it because they long ago lost the ablilty to dream themselves? Or maybe they think that to dream of something better or different is an insult to their own life? Perhaps an insult to their own efforts fitting into a society opressing dreamers?
Your piece speaks to me of the need to never give up our dream of love, regardless of the obstacles. We must LIVE our dream of love, unabashedly, and allow our sisters and brothers to do so as well – and together we will create a better and more caring world. If we live our dream of love openly and without shame, then our longing may not be such shy and strange birds, but colorful and beautiful birds that no one would want to shoot!
Thank you for your fantastic art! It is obvious that it comes directly from your heart!
Trish You haven’t read any of his others yet, have you?Beth Go. Read. Now.J.C. yes, rvieew is a generous term, in this case. Melissa I think it’s slightly ahead of Looking for Alaska for me. It’s hard, because I love both of them (way more than Katherines), but I think the road trip from Paper Towns puts it in the lead.
Didn’t like idea of this show in advance.But what was ctreaed was most layered experience imaginable. Intricate interwoven narratives and great ideas, cmon Vworld idea rocks and just look how they used it hedonistic entertainment, emotional cathartism, assassination and the rest.. brilliantand that was just one small component of the world/story ctreaed. Power, terrorism, growing up, action and no Dirk Benedict And as for Polly Walker brrrrrrrrr .. one of the scariest characters EVER, Dick Cheney with tits just look at the hatred etched into her face when she thought she was betrayed, pure evil, fantastic.Surprised there are no other comments

It might have more to do with our blue laws than anything else. Businesses were cosled on Sundays… where would you buy a Sunday newspaper? And then the stores were cosled on Sunday anyway, so where would you go to buy something advertised, in any case.To be honest, I much prefer getting the newspaper on Saturday, it gives you the whole weekend to read it at your leisure. Besides, the weekends are slow news days. Even the TV news is curtailed on the weekend.
