The world beyond death is unknown, and, yeah, sure, that’s likely too heavy of an opening for a post about papercraft. But artist Matt Lee can’t help inspecting and evaluating the differences and similiarties he sees as presence vs. absence and sense and nonsense, in a range from drawing and collage to photography and video.
In his series Death Landscapes III, Lee moved beyond the bleak inky work of Death Landscapes I and the cut-and-paste strangeness of Death Landscapes II. Instead, he found himself in what may be his most exploratory nature with the dismal pales of papercraft.
He explains, “The transitory nature of imagery and material examined through a series of internal landscape collages. Constructed with layers of cut plain paper, the miniature relief images become visible when light casts shadows across the surface, demarcating and defining space to complete the work.”
