the detail-focused sculptor, painter and animator jen stark has sent designboom images of her most recent work. stark’s highly-intricate geometric works are always formed in vibrant colors, as these shades seem to have seeped into the treatment of each piece from her bright miami, florida, USA home. the hypnotic hand-cut paper sculptural works, kaleidoscopic videos and saturated murals incorporate echoing patterns and mathematical concepts which create an infinite-like quality to her artwork.

  • Hi Jen,
    I would like to know if you have a special quote which may explain the inspiration or motivation you get when doing your paper cutting art work.
