Self-taught French artist Nathalie Boutté has perfected a technique for creating portraits that, in itself, is nothing out of the oridinary: long strips of paper are cut and then laid on top of other strips of paper, over and over. But when it all comes together? It’s beauty.
You start to notice the subtleties of the various shades of paper, the unique irregularities in a person’s face that, somehow, have been captured with tiny strips of paper. The more I look at these, I can’t help but think that this is really sculpting in two dimensions.
