Kako Ueda's Cut Paper Art

Paper Art has fascinated me for quite some time. Work from artists who choose to create in this medium can vary greatly, but I happen to be particularly intrigued and impressed with Kako Ueda.

Quite simply, she brings paper to life in such an original & moving way. 

Kako's perspective on her work and that which inspires it is summarized as follows ... 
(organic beings) “are born out of nature but [are] constantly being influenced and modified by culture. And the line between culture and nature is always shifting depending on the time and where one is.”

Eros & Thanatos is featured here (above) from her 2008 Show "Drawn in the Clouds" ... you can view more of her work at
