Although it is an art with a century-old history, the art of paper carving is recently experiencing a rediscovery. More and more artists can create beautiful works of art with a sheet of paper and a cutter. Among these, the French-Canadian artist Myriam Dion stands out for her originality and skill. For years she has fascinated her public by transforming simple pages of newspapers into magnificent works of art for exhibitions.
Myriam manages to create something amazing, because with a lot of patience she works so well with paper that she disguises it, making her fabric artworks look like small tapestries or crochet works. The artist plays with the writings, titles, and images, following the edges or creating in total freedom.
But in addition to showing an impeccable technique, her works want to be an original way to preserve an object that is less and less used, every day, giving it another value.
