guest star #61...ritsuko ogura

today's guest star is japanese artist, ritsuko ogura. i found her via alternatives gallery and was immediately drawn to her work because of the material she uses and how she manipulates it. the material is cardboard and i love how she delicately cuts and layers it to create voluminous, sculptural pieces. i also like how the layers interact to create line and pattern and the way light comes into play in the negative space. the finished pieces are at once intimate and monumental.

be sure to visit her page at the alternatives website - you can see multiple views of each piece including images on the body and the mechanisms.

thanks for reading.
