100 Aspects of the Moon
Hand-cut paper, watercolor, acrylic, Sumi ink
"100 Aspects of the Moon," is a new paper cutaway exhibition by Lauren Iida. This new collection features 100 intricately hand-cut works inspired by Japanese woodblock artist, Yoshitoshi's 1890s series by the same name. Each new piece captures a moment from the artist's experience, sometimes inspired by her home in Cambodia, sometimes drawing on her Japanese American family's archive of vintage photographs.
