Portraits Carved From Completed Paintings

In a process of creative addition and subtraction, artist Kuin Heuff creates her intricate portraits of men. Looking like intricate wood cuts, each painting began as a complete portrait on paper, Heuff then studies the brush stroke patterns and form of the painting and starts cutting away pieces. Her results are portraits with a light, lace-like structure that still retains its painterly color. For more on this Rotterdam based artists work including a selection of her uncut paintings see kuinheuff.nl.
