Animal Paper Cutting

Australian Lisa Rodden has been creating art since she was little. But it was her world travels, and the different cultures she encountered along the way, that have inspried her creations. 

In working with Aboriginal communities, Rodden learned how closely intertwined people and the environment truly are. Her work thus explores the idea of connectivity—of shapes, textures, forms and colors. All work together to bring her art to another level of complexity and beauty.
