Creating with Paper – a new display

Paper dolls

Paper dolls by Ilsoo Kyung

Paper is a medium of ideas.

We write or print on paper every day to record what is in our mind.  Paper is also a versatile medium for artist to express their creative thoughts.

From trained artists to kindergarten students, they use techniques of folding, cutting, pop-ups, papier-mâché to create fascinated papercraft to decorate their lives.

CREATING WITH PAPER highlights selected library collections on paper art as well as features artworks including traditional Chinese papercuts, paper dolls by Korean artist Ilsoo Kyung, origami (paper folding), pop-ups, etc.
