Cut Collage

xinsong

 

While paper itself can present information (in magazines), it can be used by itself as presentation. Xin Song uses it for both. Her compositions of papercuts use pieces of magazines containing similar motifs. These motifs tell one message, while the beautiful imagery of the papercuts is juxtaposed. The double use of paper as a messenger and as a message has a certain “aha!” quality after looking closely at the collages. See more of her collages here.
