Jen Stark Art

Oh my quivering greatness.

I have a small obsession with paper art.  I think it is so beautiful, and is such a versatile material.  Would I be able to do it?  Nope.  I’m a clumsy oaf that will dirty, crumple, sit on and tear anything that even smells this delicate.

Jen Stark is a master of her craft - her meticulous craftsmanship and her apparent endless patience allows beautiful items like these to find a place in the world. very aptly describes her work as “an amusement park for the eyes.”  Apparently “the recurring geometric patterns in each piece reflect many elements of life, including the passage and intervallic rhythm of time.”  I can’t quite get that far - I just keep staring at it all, trying to absorb the awesomeness.
