Oakland-based artist Annie Vought who have been cutting out the white bits of hand-written letters, leaving behind just the actual letters resulting in an amazing cut paper art.
Here’s an excerpt from Annie’s website:
I meticulously recreate notes and letters that I have found, written, or received by enlarging the documents onto a new piece of paper and intricately dissecting the negative spaces with an Exact-o knife. The handwriting and the lines support the structure of the cut paper, keeping it strong and sculptural, despite its apparent fragility. In these paper cutouts, I focus on the text, structure, and emotion of the letter in an elaborate investigation into the properties of writing and expression.
