A metaphor for peoples multiple inside layers…Cylinder: Paper Cut Jen Stark The Cylinder Paper Cut with a solid surface thats cut open caught my eye: Could we see the paper layers as a symbolic representation of the inner layers of people, or objects…? Definitely. You are one of the first people to mention this.
Cynlinder Roll Jen Stark I like to make the insides very colourfully confusing. You can relate it to people or things being so complicated and elaborate on the inside. Yet the outside layer is usually white to show that something may look simple and ordinary on the outside – but the inside is beaming with colour!
The Mandala-style Untitled. Sculpture 03 Jen Stark About the mysterious Untitled: Is it inspired by kind of a Mandala ? Mandala How do you develop it? It is mainly inspired by geometric patterns. I just cut a shape and slowly change it as the layers progress. With these kind of sculptures I usually dont know what the end design will look like.

A beautiful Mold Study. Jen Stark When did you start with your… can I call it kaleidoscope paper art ?
I began making paper sculptures when I went to study in France for a semester. Since I could only take two suitcases with me for five months, I decided to purchase art supplies when I got there. Mold Study Jen Stark

Assorted Explosion Jen Stark About your lovely eruptive Assorted Explosion: Is it meant to depict an explosion in its early stage?
Detail of Assorted Explosion: imagine how long these most delicate cuts might have taken… Jen Stark Exactly! Usually, stacks of construction paper are sold in assortments of colour.

Real leaves from the folks backyard, meticulously cut out… Jen Satrk
Multiple layers as metaphor for the many layers a personality may have… How poetic cardboard can be! So, apart from your paper explosions, what inspired your beautiful beautiful, fragile paper leaves as silhouettes silhouettes? I live in Miami, Florida, and these leaves came off of trees from my parents backyard. They are called sea-grape trees trees because the trees produce grape- looking berries. I was searching for something to cut into and I decided to try a leaf because it is pretty thick and strong. I was inspired by how leaves can naturally turn into skeletons over time time – losing the green part and keeping only the veins. I wanted to simulate this with my X-Acto. Jen Stark
