Olly Moss

There is something so whimsical about papercuts. My painting professor in college, Jim Cogswell, was raised in Japan where he learned how to carve these magnicent pieces of paper art. He would install these gigantic, overwhelming bouts of color made from rubber stamps, mulberry paper, ink and adhesive shelf paper all over Ann Arbor. He would work so hard to lay each piece of paper just right onto the wall or the window of the exhibit space and then when the show was over-his piece would be destroyed in the takedown.  Designer Olly Moss (http://www.ollymoss.com/) has a new solo exhibit featuring his papercutting magic. Below are a few images I found on his website of the show, but you can view the complete collection here: ollymosspapercuts.blogspot.com.
