Cut Out Figures

Cut Out Figures

Foodism Magazine
November 2019

I created these cut out figures from the pages of Foodism Magazine. Like all my cut outs, they are loosely inspired by the work of Henri Matisse.

Figure Drawing on Painted Pages

I painted these pages and marked off sections that I thought had good visual interest. I drew the model in session and then cut out the pieces and placed them together to create relationships.

LCBO Self Portraits

For cut outs, very quick, dynamic poses create stronger images. Using myself as a model gives me the ability to create poses with plentiful negative space to define the figure. 

This LCBO Magazine was ideal for this set. It uses bold, supersaturated colours, crisply contrasted with stark whites.  

Collective Drawing Group

These are the first works I created in the cut-out series. I painted and inked surfaces and played around with different backgrounds to highlight the pieces.
