The Astonishing Paper Cutter
The intricate paper art of Hunter Stabler.
Notes about the artist (from bio, retrieved from Kunstraum Richard Sorge at Flickr):
Hunter Stabler creates delicate cut paper compositions of elaborate patterning and religious/mythological symbols. His work involves a formal play between the illusion of space, actual physical shadow, and the flat two-dimensions of the paper. Stabler received his BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute, College of Art and his MFA in painting from the University of Pennsylvania. His work has been exhibited across the United States. He is a past recipient of the Royal College of London Exchange Program Fellowship, a Yale Norfolk Fellowship, a Joan Mitchell Foundation Fellowship, and was selected to collaborate with The Fabric Workshop Museum for the Philagrafika 2008 Invitational Print Portfolio.
