Paper is an invention as old as the hills, but there are always new users for it. Maude White, a talented artist from New York, found a completely new application for those blank white sheets that we use to print our documents on. He came up with a brilliant concept of turning paper into snowflake-like pieces of art.
One could call White's works illustrations, but in reality they're sculptures that rely heavily on fine lines and negative space to tell their stories. Artist very carefully cuts the paper in one place and leaves it untouched in other to create carvings that can really take your breath away with their meticulous detailing and precision, especially when you consider that one shaky cut could have destroyed the whole project.
