Cybèle Young Creates Beautiful Miniature Worlds Out Of Fine Paper

Cybèle Young Creates Beautiful Minature Worlds Out Of Fine Paper

Cybèle Young is a renowned artist and author based in Toronto that creates miniature worlds made of fine Japanese paper. Working with diverse mediums, Young’s installations engage with abstract and familiar motifs and have a sculptural quality to them, where ordinary objects are given new dimensions and breath of life which makes them just as beautiful as they are delicate. A perfect example is the umbrella above transforming into a jellyfish, where both have a very similar range of motion. Young is able to juxtapose sculptures to create a sense of dialogue or play between them, making her pieces truly unique. Her artistic manifesto is to create ‘miniature theaters’, where viewers can immerse themselves into alternate, surreal worlds, all the while discovering the under-layers of everyday life. Young's intricate sculptural artworks are inspired by seemingly insignificant day-to-day experiences, where objects imply familiar human interactions and small observations become fantastic.

Winnie Truong Creates Beautifully Grotesque Cut Paper Illustrations

Winnie Truong Creates Beautifully Grotesque Cut Paper Illustrations

Working exclusively with colored pencils, Toronto based illustrator Winnie Truong's body of work continues to explore the possibilities of large-scale drawing and the expressiveness of hair as subject in her art. 'Paper Cuts' is a new body of work by Winnie Truong that was created over the course of a two-month period of isolation at the Doris McCarthy Artist Residency at Fool’s Paradise. Truong collected and drew from her surrounding winter cottage and landscape, the silhouettes of branches, withered florae, and dry grass which she uses as layered and dimensional elements that organically emerge from her deserted nude figures. Her works are both beautiful and grotesque, familiar and discomforting; Truong's drawings question and subvert our heavily coded ideas of beauty and the status quo while inspiring the imagination.
