Tomoko Shioyasu

apanese artist Tomoko Shioyasu was born in Osaka in 1981 and majored in sculpture at the Kyoto City University of Arts. Her immense floor-to-ceiling tapestries are meticulously cut by hand from enormous sheets of paper using utility knives and soldering irons. Her work evokes some of nature’s most complex creations: the organic patterns of cells, the flow of water, and the forces of wind. How these are hung without tearing seems nearly impossible.Her latest work, “Vortex” (first two images) is currently on display as part of the show Bye Bye Kitty!!! Between Heaven and Hell in Japanese Art at Japan Society in New York

And how she manages to create these without tearing, scuffing or creasing is impressive too.
