a cut above

Way way back in 2006 the ladies of HML sang the praises of artist Emma Van Leest. And then something crazy happened. The world, its seemed, went crazy for paper cutting. Which is fair enough because in terms of handmade this has to one the most labour intensive but also one of the most impressive art forms.

Van Leest's new show Perpetua at the John Buckley gallery sees her refining the work, going larger in scale and looser in composition. It's her lightness of touch that we find so impressive.

It's hard to really see how amazing these are with these little pics. You really need to go see them. You have until the 26th of June. prepare to be amazed!
