PAPERCUT ART BY MYRIAM DION

Armed with a scalpel and latest edition of Le Devoir or the International Harold Tribune, Canadian artist Myriam Dion cuts rich textural patterns remeniscent of emroidered lacework right into the pages newspapers.
Major design elements and photographs from the pages are often left intact or otherwise incorporated into her paper cuts, creating a strange element of harmony, as if the paper was always intended to look like this.
It’s also amazing to consider that each tiny cut is made by hand, and yet more negative space is left behind than actual paper.
