Art du papier découpé (paper cutting art)
An ancient Swiss tradition this paper cutting art form is feast for the eyes! Each unique piece tells a magical story. And you could own one from this multi-talented artist, Beun Marie-Laure. She will be adding her own twist, with the ‘zinzin’ (the little crazy people) – especially for the Zip Zap Auction.
She describes this poetic artistic ritual most aptly: “The cutting reveals different universes that lie dormant in me. Sometimes I wake them up by illustrating them, other times I tell the stories. I draw and I cut. Each step is magic. I never know what end creation will be and I cannot wait to turn my sheet over to see the culmination of all these hours of work. Each time, I discover a story, a surprising landscape that is more alive than I could have imagined.”
This Auction Lot includes: A unique and once-off Art du Papier handcrafted piece
