These new large scale cut paper dragons are made from previously printed images from my Cover Girl Series. The process started by hand cutting lines into a cover of an adult magazine. Then a second magazine cover was cut and inlaid into the open line work. Each cover created a new piece to be inlaid. The finished magazine covers were then scanned and printed on high quality paper by Singer Editions, Boston, MA. The paper size of most of the prints measure 46 x 34 inches. 

 

The images of dragons flowers come directly from traditional Chinese paper cuts that I have been collecting for several years. I have been making smaller versions using magazine centerfolds since 2007, when I was asked to participate in the 10th anniversary exhibition for The Institute for Electronic Arts at Alfred University, Alfred, NY. The exhibition took place at several galleries and spaces In Beijing, China.
