I always find it so interesting when artists use things other than pastels and paints to express their vision. Don’t get me wrong, there have been some pretty kick-ass paintings, drawings and photos over the years but I still find it more interesting to see the artists’ creativity at work in ways other than the piece or image presented to the public.
With steady hands and a mind of imagination, Paris-based artist Anastassia Elias used thin pieces of cardboard to create tiny scenes inside of toilet paper rolls. Upon completion, Elias named this collection “Paper Cut-Rolls”. By using cardboard of the same color as her canvas (the TP rolls) the illusion is given that the images are actually a part of the tissue roll. As if this project isn’t cool enough already, Ms. Elias used a very eclectic array of still life images including a group of guys in wheelchairs playing basketball, a mother taking her son to see the Giraffes at the zoo and good old fashion circus! Also, if illuminated from certain angles these still-life scenes show two different sides of the same story. I love it! Scan thorough the images below and pick out your favorites!
