Jill Sylvia Interviewed by In the Make

October 17, 2011

In the Make recently published a great interview with paper artist Jill Sylvia (previously) including a number of tantalizing process photos of her signature cut ledger paper sculptures. If you’re not familiar, In the Make is a weekly collaborative interview and photo series between photographer Klea McKenna and writer Nikki Grattan. From their about page:

Through studio visits with artists and designers, we hope to explore each artist’s
space, process, influences, and the behind-the-scenes elements that are often unseen in the finished work. We look to highlight the ways in which each artist’s personal aesthetic pervades their environment and reveals their perspective. We are also interested in the daily realities of making creative work and how each artist sustains their practice.

Their impressive list of interviews includes studio chats with Jesse Schlesinger, Christina Empedocles (previously), and Josephine Taylor. Well worth your time.
