This post has been sitting in my draft folder for many months, but now that I’m about to try my hand at paper lightbox creation, Hari & Deepti are on my mind.
Their technique is unparalleled; the use of layering, light placement and various techniques to manipulate opacity create a surprising degree of depth and detail.
From the artist bio:
Paper is brutal in its simplicity as a medium. It demands the attention of the artist while it provides the softness they need to mold it in to something beautiful. It is playful, light, colorless and colorful. It is minimal and intricate. It reflects light, creates depth and illusions in a way that it takes the artist through a journey with limitless possibilities.
The contrast between the plain pieces, and their inviting glow when lit is quite magical. It’s as if they literally come to life.
