EQUIPPED with a pen­cil, pa­per and pair of scis­sors, UK artist Re­becca J Coles in­tri­cately dis­sects small de­tails of colour, im­agery and text out of flat sheets of pa­per or postage stamps.

Re­becca then trans­forms th­ese every­day ob­jects into three­d­i­men­sional mag­i­cal sil­hou­ettes, with each piece be­ing com­posed of hun­dreds if not thou­sands of pro­files that are then sculpted, pinned and en­cased into stun­ning art forms.

Each shape in ‘Fiery Skip­per’ (pic­tured) is hand drawn and then hand cut from care­fully se­lected pa­per, fo­cus­ing on re­cy­cling a medium that would oth­er­wise be dis­carded and lost.

Re­becca’s first Aus­tralian ex­hi­bi­tion will be held jointly with Lyn Franke and ex­clu­sive to Fu­sion Fine Arts, from Septem­ber 18-Oc­to­ber 18.

The gallery is at 121A Hay Street, Su­bi­aco and open Mon­day-Fri­day 8am-4pm, Satur­day 12-4pm (Sun­day and after hours by ap­point­ment).
