Paper Cutting Collections

Papercutting is the recent method Abby utilizes in his works to censor somehow any parts that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to his security. After he used embroidery and yarn to cover sexual organs or prohibited scenes, he employed paper cutting to either frame the subject or over the finished painting to emphasize knitted texture or the vibe of wedding dresses. In other words, Abby balances negative and positive space much in the same way he works with light and shadow in his paintings.
