Featured Artist: Mary Karavos

Friday, February 21st, 2014

I had the opportunity to meet Mary Karavos back in December at The One Of A Kind Craft and Art Show in Toronto. Mary is a paper collage artist from Guelph, Ontario who uses many of the Japanese and Nepalese papers we carry at The Paper Place in her artwork.

“Life Awaits” Mary Karavos

 

Mary’s work is incredibly detailed and thought out. She has an amazing eye for layering and arranging the papers in a way that almost makes the images come to life. It’s hard to imagine that everything is made from paper. My favourites are her abstract pieces. The layering and colours in each piece is amazing and very inspiring to me.

Twenty Images of Twenty Rooms

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

The abandoned rooms and spaces of Toronto artist, Sean Robert MacPherson tell stories of past occupants.  The furniture in the space has been discarded and left behind with the ghost memories of a time when they were useful.  Sean’s work puts spotlight on the disposable lifestyle of current society and our need to replace the old with the new, often before it is necessary.

Sean’s works are made all the more real with the inclusion of decorative pattern papers.  Using some of our Chiyogami, Italian and Nepalese papers, he adds depth and texture to the space.  You become drawn in by the small details that give authenticity to the story of the space.
