Gasp! This is new work by Canadian artist Myriam Dion. I’ve written about her before, and I’ll do it again! In fact, I’m including her story and work in my upcoming book… how can I not?! Working slowly and carefully, Myriam meticulously transforms heavy front page headlines into delicate lace. Beautiful. And speaking of beautiful, here is one of her quotes from the book:

“I conceive my work like a gift of my time. I wish to give that tranquillity to viewers, that they can use this time to contemplate with attention and let themselves sink in the act of observation.” ~ Myriam Dion, 2017

    This is amazing work – I hope there will be a podcast with her. I am so curious about her process. How to turn a newspaper into lace. To me it verifies my own various and eclectic processes which are always about assisting me in remaining as close to calm as I can in the face of chaos. Thank you!
