Atlas Cutouts

Artist Claire Brewster has created these paper silhouettes of plants, birds and fish from old maps. Her work is about retrieving the discarded and bringing life to the obsolete. She uses old and out of date maps and atlases as her fabric of choice. The cut-outs are either pinned directly to the wall as a large scale installation or they are captured in a box frame. The shadows created from the light gives these installments a 3D quality and creates almost a feel of movement. These cut-outs are very creative and give a different feel on how someone else's trash can becomes someone's art. Check out more of her work on her blog.
