Whoa. Teeny tiny bits of torn and pasted photo on paper. This is the meticulous work of Korean born, New Jersey based artist Keun Young Park. I do not know how she has the patience to create masterpiece after masterpiece… absolutely stunning.
I have a feeling that these are actually old film photos that have been placed in the sun so that the emulsion begins to crack. I don’t believe hey are tiny individual pieces of paper that have been pasted back together by someone with extremely good patience and hands!
no, they really are tiny bits of paper. here’s a description from her site: “The artist begins her process with original photographs keyed to various evocative hues. The images are shredded by hand into thousands of tiny pieces that are then reassembled. Between the pasted pieces are thin, white, vein-like lines that reveal the texture of the paper’s edge.”
