Japanese artist Risa Fukui’s series of large-scale paper cutouts (known as Kirie) is currently on display at the Pola Museum Annex in Tokyo. Fukui created these pieces by mounting her intricately cut paper figures on hanging translucent panels, which allow the double-sided works to be viewed both from the front as well as the back. The cutouts cast shadows on the floor, which give them an additional dimensionality.
The exhibit titled “LIFE-SIZED,” will be on display at the gallery until September 8, 2013.
