I fell in love to Elise Wehle’s work. She is an artist based in Orem,UT, USA, and paper is her material. I think that even in a high digital era, like we are living now, paper is irreplaceable.
Elise explains the work by saying, “I make the art I do to pull me away from the increasingly digital world that surrounds me. Every day I spend so much time in front of a glowing screen that sometimes I forget I possess five bodily senses and not just one or two. Making art makes me conscious of my hands again, and all of my work requires time-intensive, redundant movements that remind me that not everything is as instantaneous as a click of a mouse. By weaving together paper, cutting lines, and folding shapes, I manipulate drawings, photos, and prints to create new landscapes for me to explore.”
Hope you like Elise’s work too!
