Hari & Deepti: Paper Cut Lightboxes

"The Protector", on the hunt...























Paper dioramas.  Paper Cut Lightboxes.  Whatever you call them, the creations of Hari & Deepti are intricate, beautiful, and mesmerizing. They share:
“Paper is brutal in its simplicity as a medium. It demands the attention of the artist while it provides the softness they need to mold it in to something beautiful. It is playful, light, colorless and colorful. It is minimal and intricate. It reflects light, creates depth and illusions in a way that it takes the artist through a journey with limitless possibilities.”
"When the Dust Settles"

You can see the heavy influence of shadow puppets in these works.
