For millenia, humanity has used paper to reflect our desires, to paint our terrors, to imprint our thoughts, and even capture souls. But what if - hidden in the fibrous heart - there's more? What if the sculptor armed herself with blades made for blood and laid bare those isolated moments and buried treasures? What if the paper itself could tell our stories?
Ivonne Carley is an artist based out of San Diego, CA. Her penchant for knives has made its way into her repertoire of artistic medium with a focus on paper-cutting and silhouettes - designed to connect all things in the planar depths of simplicity and translating it into the emotional balance between the dark and the light.
When not poring away at her scalpels and inks, Ivonne spends her time with her daughter and familiars, collecting oddities, keeping the art of snail mail alive, connecting with her Mexican roots, waiting for Halloween, and cultivating her ever growing Trucker’s Vocabulary.
