Annie Vought, an Oakland California based artist, explores emotional artifacts, specifically that of the handwritten letter. In this particular series, Vought gathers various notes and found letters that have been written or received and enlarges them. She then carefully carves these large pieces which in turn reveals a new communicative piece of interconnected letters, keeping the spelling errors and human quality of the original piece.
David Adey is a master of taking something from our every day lives, fashion magazines, and transforming them into these incredibly detailed works of art. With this particular piece entitled “Swarm”, there is a whirlwind of different tones of skin pulled and cut from the very pages of magazines and pinned to form a literal swarm as if nature itself is erupting from the depths. Also very appropriate, since spring has approached us in this very manner. One can only imagine the extensive amount of hours placed in how meticulous it is. Also be sure to check out his other immensely detailed works at www.davidadey.com.
Our next talented paper artist comes from Northern California with a background in all things art where his whole family has a background in artistry. You may have seen his work before, but if you haven’t your in for a special treat. He creates these beautiful paper cut masterpieces that are so detailed I can’t even imagine how long they must have taken. His work pays homage to Guilloché patterns, which is a system used to produce a complex series of geometrical patterns which can be seen on currency throughout the world. I can only hope I have the pleasure of seeing these lovely pieces in person one day. Without further ado I present our awesome interview with paper artist Tahiti Pehrson!
You may remember the whimsical Spacephabet we featured by paper artist Jared Andrew Schorr, showcasing the illustrative fun he places in his paper illustrations.

Jared’s take involves the spectrum of Muppets which is absolutely awesome and clever.
