About Masayo

A single color world created by a piece of paper

Masayo Fukuda / 福田 理代
1973/10/26

I liked drawing since I was a child. I started Paper Cutting Art about 30 years ago and have improved skills by self-study.
Among the limitations of one sheet of paper, how far can we put a life into a work? I am exploring it over my whole life.

小さな頃から絵を描いたり、手先を使って何かを表現することが好きでした。約30年前に切り絵に出会い、それ以来、独学で作品作りを続けてきました。
1枚の紙という制限の中で、どこまで作品に命を込められるのか。生涯をかけて探求しています。
