UNDER THE KNIFE: THE CARVED PAPER SCULPTURE OF JENNIFER FALCK LINSSEN
By Jennifer Falk Linssen, Boulder, CO

Learn how 2 + 2 = 5 --- it's the magic of the epiphany moment.  Learn how Jennifer came to be creating contemporary katagami sculpture - a stunning mix of carved paper and sculptural form.  Delve into Jennifer's world of technique, concept, and inspiration.

Jennifer Falck Linssen is a classically trained fine artist who has been designing and creating art for more than 20 years. Trained in the Japanese traditions of katazome and katagami, she combines the precise and painstaking process of katagami-style paper carving with metalsmithing and basketry traditions. Her artwork reflects the refinement and harmony of fine Japanese craft; the elegance and beauty of European textile traditions; and the form and texture of American and African art. Linssen’s design work has been exhibited internationally and her contemporary art basketry has been in nationally juried exhibits, invitational exhibitions and appears in several publications.
