Swoon, Alison Corrie and Solovei: Cut Paper Installation






Swoon, Alison Corrie and Solovei created this massive paper installation in collaboration at Black Floor Gallery, Philadelphia. The installation was for artists to create "La Boca Del Lobo" which means "mouth of the wolf" in Spanish and that's "exactly what artists Swoon, Solovei and Alison Corrie have teamed up to create: the "mouth," or doorway, into a mythical wonderland of temples, wolves and blood. The creepy-beautiful, Narnia-esque effect comes from intricate, snowflake-like cut paper installations that hang like curtains from Black Floor's ceiling." - Citypaper.

The patience and all the hard work it must take to create something like this is just mind-boggling. The work is so detailed and intricate that you can actually make out the human heads, patterns, animals, birds and owls. You can see more pictures here.
