take the virtual gallery tour
The Night Studio is a special place for crow-lovers and bat aficionados with a bit of mystery and fun thrown in. A multi-media experience, visiting the Night Studio will give you a little different way to look at cut paper art. Scroll down to view a couple of highlights, then the entire collection.
Bat in the Belfry
An automaton created in cut paper! I spent many, many late evenings in the night studio working on this sculpture of a long-eared bat flying over it's cut paper belfry. Turning the crank makes him flap his wings. Peek behind the paper "wrought iron railing to see a sparkly paper bell hanging from the workings.
This piece was the star of "Night Studio" a little spooky video short, shown below.
Counting Crows series
Counting Crows was a poem often recited by my mother as we drove down the country roads of NW Iowa, where I grew up. Here I've illustrated the verse, plus made a stop motion video with the paper parts. The video is running in the gallery alongside the artwork.
The 11 x 11 x 2.5" shadowboxes each have the entire verse handwritten around the mat.
