Earth star

Earth star is the last of the current series of paper cuttings entitled Floating Worlds. It’s also the biggest and most complex of the series.

 It took almost 2 months to cut and paint.

Approx 80cm in diameter  this complex organic world floats aimlessly. Inside there are tiny creatures that live there. Are they trapped or are they the rulers of this kingdom?
At the last count there were 24 beetles and one butterfly!

 Here you can see Earth star's shadow projected onto the wall behind.

This piece along with four others from this recent series of paper cuttings will be exhibited in January and February of next year in Taipei.... but more on that nearer the time.
