PAPER ART II. Xia Jiajia. Artpower International Publishing Co., Hong Kong, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 320 pp. 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9789881354242 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Over the past few years a somewhat new movement in the art and design world has emerged, using paper as its central core. While some have worked for many years in this field, a whole new generation of artists have joined their ranks. This book explores some of the best in this field from around the world, delving into their works and showing us many of their most favorite, unique pieces. It focuses on work done in the last two years. The emergence and interest in this art form globally is perhaps born out of reaction, conscious or unconscious to a world saturated by technology and the need for artist to express themselves using one of the simplest of materials available, paper, to create images and forms that excite and amaze their audience and show what we, as humans can make. While some may hand cut and others apply laser cutting methods to their work, the amazing diversity and complexity of the pieces presented in this book offer a fascinating window into how art can again evolve and where human ingenuity can reinvent even the simplest of materials into fresh new forms.
