Noriko Ambe is a Japanese artist who specializes in large-scale papercuts. Her work is Charles Clary-esque except with more flow and movement as if the paper were oil in water. She uses books, artist’s catalogs, and individually-cut single sheets of paper in stacks to create her works. I couldn’t get enough of her work. I just kept flipping through her gallery and hoped it would keep going and going. I really want to see one of her installations in person. I can’t imagine how much patience and time one piece must take.
