Ueda-san will have a new gallery opening in 2013, which will exhibit her recent mixed-media cut paper installations. These images are from her earlier environment-centric collection, made entirely of meticulously cut paper. While some are etched from one sheet, others are multi-layered to create three-dimensional ecological microcosms. Magnificent, yes?
These itsy-bitsy wonders are the work of Tokyo-based artist and architectural model maker Akinobu Izumi and are part of an ongoing series entitledTiny World in a Bottle. “Using intricately cut paper, little pieces of cork and, when necessary, liquid paraffin for a floating effect, he fills thumb-size bottles with creatures, ships and curious scenes.”
