Intricately Cut Newspapers Resemble Lacework

Newspapers are given another life, and a glorious one at that, in Myriam Dion‘s hands as she painstakingly weaves patterns and intricate designs from circulars like Herald Tribune, Le Devoir, Cape Cod Times or FT Weekend. The Canadian artist seeks for the perfect image to be her canvas and with X-ACTO knife on hand, she turns an ordinary piece of paper to a composition of fragile lacework that is absolutely breathtaking. The transformation through Dion’s detailed artwork of each swirling, moving pattern also provide a way to preserve and immortalize the soon-to-be-obsolete type of media.
