"I Live in Orlando But Sometimes I Dream of Other Places"
Gallery at Avalon Island
|Artist Lesley Silvia with her Paper cut "Balancing Act" 22x30"|
The art of Silvia's paper cuts takes on storytelling. One interesting aspect we discussed is how she can depict gore, such as a beheading via a Silhouette, utilizing the art of cutting outlines out of black paper where upon the viewer can behold the tale without a bloodied image. Her creations are striking from a distance and even more intriguing up close as you see all of the tiny hand cuttings that make up the original artworks.
