Scissors For A Brush – Karen Bit Vejles at the Bergen City Museum

While in Bergen I checked out Karen Bit Vejles’s exhibition at the Bergen City Museum – Scissors for Brush – a collection of paper silhouettes set in enchanted themes of fairies, nature, mermaids and music. Below you can see some examples of this massive pieces – I definitely preferred the more unique pieces with throwbacks to folklore and old tapestries over the more formulaic ‘fairy’ styles which were a bit too girly for my tastes. This style of paper art, with a similar aesthetic to line drawing and etching, is definitely something I want to explore more of.
