Here’s my new papercut, The Homecoming, which I’ve made for the Once Upon Again exhibition as it moves to London. It opens on 28th June at the Winns Gallery in Walthamstow.
I’d originally intended to make the wolf/woodcutter a shadow puppet, but knew he needed a forest setting with a cottage in the background to really make the character work. So I figured I could create a mini shadow puppet theatre within a box frame and made a “set” using layers of papercuts. It’s mostly cut from Bockingford, and the Wolf/Woodcutter is made from coal-grey Murano paper.
