2nd Place Award: "Papercuts White-emerald" by Reni Gower, Acrylic on hand cut paper

I design stencils based on the sacred geometry embedded in Celtic knotwork and Islamic ornamental patterns. These stencils are traced onto large sheets of painted paper and hand cut into complex interlocking motifs. The papercuts are installed 1 off the wall to maximize the cast shadows and reflected color. This layering creates delicate illusions that hover in space. Using only a box cutter, I work slowly to produce pieces that counter visual skimming and celebrate the redemptive nuance of work made by hand. Through the intricate patterning, my art becomes an intimate vehicle for quiet reflection.
