Confidence is what I need to find.

These awesomely intricate layered cut paper sculptures are the work of Virginia-based artist and professor Eric Standley. We shared some of his beautiful creations here last year, but these photos provide a much better look at just how astonishingly delicate and intricate Standley’s creations are. They’re incredibly complex stained glass windows without the glass.

Visit Eric Standley’s website to check out more of his awesome paper art.

For a project entitled Rouleaux, French multimedia artist Anastassia Elias (previously featured here) creates enchanting silhouetted scenes inside humble cardboard toilet paper tubes.

"Lit from behind, her delightful cardboard scenes appear like stills from a mysterious work of shadow puppetry. Here, the roll, most commonly a piece of trash associated with the mundane rituals of domestic life, becomes elevated to the realm of high art. Elias’s visual narratives span time and space; as surely as summer swings fade to frigid snowmen, we move from an underwater universe to the barber shop around the corner."

The paper shapes are cut from paper the same colour as the cardboard roll, which give them the illusion of being part of the roll itself. They’re carefully positioned inside the roll using tweezers. Each delicate piece takes up to several hours to complete.

Elias recently self-published a book of her Rouleaux pieces, currently available here. The pieces themselves are currently on exhibit at the National Museum of Singapore until August 3, 2014.

Visit Anastassia Elias’ website to check out more of her artwork, including more Rouleaux.

The Intricate Handcut Paper World of Maud White

I come from a family of visual storytellers. I have always believed that our vision is as important as our hearing when we communicate. Very rarely do we rely on words alone. It is what we see, and how our brains interpret what we see that shapes our perceptions and actions. I began cutting paper with that understanding. I want my art to communicate to the observer what my words cannot do effectively.

When I was a child I thought a great deal about hidden spaces. The intimacy, the hushed secrecy – I was always looking underneath objects, or through them. I have always believed that if you look hard enough, you will see something precious and new, or, perhaps, something incredibly ancient and sacred.

Current show is at the fantastic Merge Restaurant in downtown Buffalo, NY! Show runs through June
