These large-scale artworks by Beijing-based artist Fu Xiaotong are the result of a painstaking process involving hundreds of thousands of holes hand-poked into massive sheets of handmade paper. Each piece is titled after the number of total pinpricks, for example: 300,800 Pinpricks, 2015 (above). You can see Xiaotong’s latest work on display in “Land of Serenity” at Chambers Fine Art in New York until March 26th. More images below.
New York-based artist Alison Moritsugu’s log paintings are so meta your head might explode. The wood used in her log series are collected from the areas depicted on the landscapes she paints on them. The salvaged logs have all also fallen naturally and contribute to a larger environmental statement about our idealized and mistaken beliefs that the wilderness will always be there.
