Kako Ueda

I have long loved paper cut work, and I recently happened across the work of Kako Ueda.

Ueda, who was born in Japan, states in her Biography that she is interested in organic beings such as insects, animals and people and how our bodies are 'born out of nature but constantly being influenced and modified by culture'.

She mainly works with Black and white and neutral colours, and adds watercolor to the paper cutouts. I'm loving the spider webs and butterflies, they are beautiful, and the detail and intricacy is incredible! You can read an interview with her HERE.
