Bovey Lee creates dizzying rice paper cutouts filled with topsy turvy twirls and turns.

She has a great artist statement:
My hand cut paper explores the tension between man and the environment in the context of power, sacrifice, and survival. These three “motivators,” as I call them, drive all our desires and behaviors toward one another and the environment.

We live in a time when we overdo everything from technology to urbanization to consumption. My recent work is informed by our precarious relationship with nature in the twenty-first century, i.e., what we do to the environment with our super machines and technologies and what nature does back to us in reaction.

  1. Wow, what a feast! It’s interesting to see how every part has to join together somehow, no matter how precariously

  2. What an incredible sociopolitical expression. So precise, insightful… powerful art!
