Paper and Scissors

Right now you are working with Matisse's technique of paper cut outs.  But he is not the only artist out there that uses colored paper and scissors to create art.  I recently found the artist Eiko Ojala and his beautiful people that were cut out of paper.  Matisse's cut outs were very simple while Ojala's are very elegant and detailed.  Or at least I think so, what do you think?



So what do you think about these?  What intrigues you about them?  What looks like the most difficult part to you?

  11. I think this is really cool! It looks very good, and it does look like it took a while. It would be hard for me to cut out shapes like that, and make it look good

  14. His works of art are simple but have detail in the main facial fetures and thats what makes them look so cool. Its cool how he alows the paper to over lap each other to create there own shadows. I think the hardest part about this would be geting the paper to make their own shadows in the right spots so it looks good.

  16. for cutouts, its good but when i first looked at it, i thought they were pretty bad and weird

    ReplyDelete
  17. it makes me think that on some of them there are two heads and it looks like it pops out at you on first glance. i think they would be quite easy to do and not really the funnest things to do.

    ReplyDelete
  18. This is really strange. I could easily do this but would end up getting bored with it.

  19. i like how they use many pieces of paper

  20. i think this is one of the wierdest things on this website. those things just freak me out they look absoulotly terible. i think they should have just painted it.

  21. I think this is really creative! It really does look creative and hard, but fun. It would be a little hard for me to do that.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  26. This type of art is the same as weve done before just a lot better. I didnt really like this project and i hope we dont do it again.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Its not even cool looking. Its different, but still dumb.

    ReplyDelete
  28. These pictures are kind of cool. They would take alot of work. The pictures are very different.

    ReplyDelete
  29. these are cool we should try this i love how he used different colors and not just skin colors

    ReplyDelete
  30. this is pretty cool. i dont think i could make something like this, i would probably get a paper cut or something. its really different type of art.

    ReplyDelete
  31. these are pretty cool pictures. i'm not able to do any cut outs like this, it's impressive how precise he cut these out

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think that theses look kind of boring. I wouldnt have the patience to do this. It is colorful though.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think it is cool. I don't think I would do this type of art. It looks hard.

    ReplyDelete
  34. They look pretty cool, I like how the only thing used is different colors of paper, and simply cutting it in a certain way.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That looks really good. that would take alot of time to make those cuts perfect. i couldnt do that.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I really like all the eyes, but i dont really like it when she puts yellow or blue faces, i think it looks better when she uses real colors.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This art interests me because of how hard it looks. The facial features look like the most difficult part to make.

    ReplyDelete
  38. They look cool because they almost look 3d. I am most intrigued that real people are that good with scissors. The face looks like it would be the hardest because making a prefect head shape it hard.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think that all of these things look kinda funny, and they also look like they wouldn't take too long. this might be something fun to try

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think all of these paper cut out look unique in there own way. All of them look kind of wierd,but also they look like they took alot of time to cut out all the little details. I think it would be fun to try and make these.

  41. These look really good and I like them. I would not have the talet or patients to do something like this. it is a very interesting project and it would be cool to make a mini project out of it.

  42. When I saw the first one I sang, "I'm blue da ba dee da ba die." Then I scrolled down to see half face man and half faced girl and then the ending potato man. I love art.

  43. I thnk is super weird, but its also pretty cool. I think this would be a good project to do in class. I like all the colors used.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like how the artist mixed up the coloring so it wasn't normal but it still was really realistic and you could recognize the facial features.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I don't know how these people did the shading with the different layers. That would be very difficult. It isn't something that requires a ton of talent because it is just cutting paper. This is something that I could do if someone put the layers together for me.

    ReplyDelete
  46. this would take too much time im sure. its cool how they used different colors. i dont think i would want to do this as a project

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like how each piece of paper makes their own shadow. The layers of colors really make each piece unique and flamboyant! I wish that the project we did like this turned out as well as these.

  48. I'm not a huge fan of these works of art but they do like kinda like they're real. The thing that makes them look that way is the eyebrows and eyes are so well made. This looks complicated but kinda cool.
