Flower Knot–The Moon Cyclist. 35.5×35.5”, 2015. Chinese xuan (rice) paper on silk, hand cut. Early last year, artist Bovey Lee (previously) made the move from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles, experiencing the overwhelming emotions and turmoil one faces when moving across the country. As a way to reconcile the differences between the two cities, Bovey began working on a new body of cut rice paper artworks that display the features and landscapes of her old and new lives as if twisted together on the spiraling tracks of rollercoasters.

Using large thin sheets of Chinese rice paper, artist Bovey Lee (previously) meticulously cuts intricate scenes of plants, roads, people, and architecture with an impressive array of cutting implements. The near weightless artworks are mounted against silk before being hung on gallery walls. Lee most recently had work on view with Grotto Fine Art as part of Art Basel in Hong Kong, as well as an exhibition with Gavlak Gallery for the Armory Show earlier this year. You can see many more pieces from the last few years in her online cut paper gallery. (via This Isn’t Happiness)…
