Xin_Song_papercut_patterns_graphics_2

Patternbank are loving these amazing paper cut artworks from Brooklyn based artist Xin Song. Her recent work borrows images from old and discarded magazines. She explains ‘Every day I see, hear, feel and think about the world through magazines which people glance through and then throw away.  For me, I have found importance and value in these materials as in many ways they are mirrored the world around us. Through paper cutting, I try to take what is ordinarily a folk, vernacular form, not very highly regarded in terms of artistic hierarchy, and turn it into a serious high art form.’ Enjoy more of her powerful and delicate work on her website www.xinsong.com.
