Cut Paper artist Bovey Lee is currently based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, she created here first cut paper piece in 2005. She explains her paper art as the tension between man and the environment and the ‘motivators’ of power, sacrifice and survival. Driving our desires and behaviors toward one another and the environment.
I hand cut each work on a single sheet of Chinese xuan (rice) paper backed with silk and both are renewable and eco-friendly materials. The tools I use are simple: cutting mat, X-acto knife and blades, staples, clips, and paperweights.
