Renowned Papercut Artist Craig Tinsky Creates Unique Ketubah for the Wedding of Sophie Robbins & Eduardo Mestre Jr.
Washington, DC, September 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Craig Tinsky is an innovative artist raised in Miami and living in Washington DC. He is the artist whose work is shown and promoted through www.onlypaper.net. Craig is best known for pushing the medium of papercut art and and creating works that look like paintings, screen prints, etchings, and photographs. It's hard to innovate in a medium more than 2,000 years old, but Craig's work does just that - fascinating and delighting critics and collectors. In 2011, He first created a Papercut using a method that is similar to pixelation. By cutting choppy, wavy ribbons into a large sheet of paper, he creates portraits so similar to photographs that the viewer can see tiny wrinkles around a subject's eyes, and individuals hairs in his beard. Up close, there seems to be no sharp or even discernible image. As the viewer backs away from a piece, the image appears to get clearer and more detailed. This ribbon-halftone technique may be the first method by which a single-sheet papercut evokes a photograph.
The Robbins-Mestre ketubah will feature a complex pattern of interlocking circles arranged in the shape of the Washington Square Park Arch.
