Weekly art websites: drawing with paper and scissors

Karen Bit Vejle - http://papercutart.no/

Peter Callesen - http://www.petercallesen.com/
Peter Callesen's paper cut sculptures erupt out of the white A4 pieces of paper they are made from, creating a stark juxtaposition between the "negative and absent 2 dimensional space" of the cut and the resulting three dimensional object.

Hong Kong born paper cutout artist Bovey Lee combines traditional and digital media to produce intricate, hand-cut works.
Jen Stark - http://jenstark.com/

Brian Dettmer - http://www.briandettmer.com/
Cutting through the pages of old architecture books, encyclopedias, and manuals, Brian Dettmer obscures and highlights words and images to recontextualize their original meanings.
Kara Walker - http://learn.walkerart.org/karawalker
American artist Kara Walker creates highly-charged, room-size installations featuring black cut-paper silhouettes. The images evoke discussions about race, gender, sexuality and repression.
