This incredibly detailed newspaper art or “lace newspapers” are the work of Canadian paper artist Myriam Dion. Using an Exacto knife and a surgeon’s precision, Dion creates intricate lacey shapes using existing text images from newspapers, cutting out white space and leaving some of the paper image in tact. The results are beautiful new images that have been completely transformed through Dion’s skilled paper cutting and fine attention to detail. She creates other deconstructive work, like her ornate burned photograph series.
Dion is currently working on a masters degree in visual and media arts at the University of Quebec, and will have her work featured in a number of upcoming exhibitions, including Pulse Miami,Art Toronto 2013, and Foire en art actuel de Québec. (via colossal)
