Where Dreams are Cut from Paper

Be prepared to be awed. Beatrice Coron plays with paper, in a big way.

At the age of 40, after different jobs in various locations throughout the world, she decided to become serious about becoming an artist and settled in New York City to pursue her passion. Choosing paper as her medium, she is a cutter constructing artist “books,” silhouettes, and elaborate imaginary worlds. After 8 years of applying for public work competitions, she finally won her first commission and has been prolific with projects as her extensive resume shows. Her art includes pieces of public art in paper, but also steel, stained glass, and etchings for subway cars and stations, public housing and public buildings all over the world. It’s pretty incredible. Here is her TED talk about her work. It’s a virtual resume and worth the time to view. ADORE the cape!
