As part of a new group exhibition at David B. Smith Gallery in Denver, artist Yuken Teruya created these two wonderfully intricate trees cut from the humble paper of a McDonald’s carryout bag. Teruya has frequently demonstrated that even the most mundane paper materials can be used to create extraordinary art including his work with toilet paper rolls, newspapers, and currency. You can stop by David B. Smith through September 1st to these pieces and new work by Colossal favorite Jason Thielke.
