Hari & Deepti an artist couple based in Colarado create magical shadow boxes from nothing more than intricately cut & layered sheets of paper & LED’s. The simplicity of the medium combined with their painstakingly detailed craftsmanship is what gives these pieces such beauty, and the stark contrast between the works lit & unlit states is mesmerising. Minimal, precice layers of white are transformed into dreamy, atmospheric visions once the lights go on, and you are truly able to appericate the level of intircacy & detail that has gone into each work.
Their pieces feel like scenes from ancient fairytales & myths, epic tales told around campfires of heroes versus monsters & good triumphing over evil. They speak of the wonders and beauty of nature, of a long gone time when man existed harmoniously alongside the rest of the world.
“Paper is brutal in its simplicity as a medium. It demands the attention of the artist while it provides the softness they need to mold it in to something beautiful. It is playful, light, colorless and colorful. It is minimal and intricate. It reflects light, creates depth and illusions in a way that it takes the artist through a journey with limitless possibilities.”
