    Kim - one-off hand painted image made from a papercut study created for my LA Faces series. Look at the video of the process. I took a ribbon-halftone papercut, laid it on a sheet of paper, then used it as a stencil to paint the contrasting ribbons. When I removed the papercut, I was left with this piece. It has elements of impressionism. A bit more rough than the original papercut - the image sharpens with distance. I was able to make 7 before the papercut/stencil gave out. Hand signed and numbered. Blue paper, gray/black paint. 1 of 7.
