Celebrating Life in a Room!
There are artworks and then, there are truly extraordinary works of art!
No one could argue that papercut products are not in themselves artworks but with Hardwick & Cesko, these products are elevated to an exemplary standard that is all too rare in the marketplace.
Many of the papercut pieces we find in shops today are laser cut and use papers of inferior quality but, with Hardwick & Cesko, both the quality of workmanship and materials utilised are as equally important as the extremely delicate and altogether outstanding imagery produced in their creations.
It is little wonder then that this Australian company utilises nothing but the highest quality rice paper and traditional hand cut methods to create their masterpieces. So much effort and care is taken to produce each and every individual piece that rest assured, the finished product is nothing short of a true work of art that would be a divine addition to the art collection of any home.
This exquisite artwork is individually hand drawn, expertly cut out of the finest of paper and presented within a solid contemporary frame making it the ideal gift for a wedding, christening or special birthday. Why not reward yourself as well and get one for your own home?
This exclusive artwork is definitely a piece that will add some interest and style to a wall and dress up any room of a house. How so much life and activity can be housed within the boundaries of a frame is absolutely astounding! It is an intricate and heartfelt piece that will be admired by anyone who sets eyes on it and will be treasured for many years to come.
A Bit About Paper-cutting
Paper-cutting is a type of folk art which can be traced back thousands of years in Chinese, Japanese, Mexican and many other ancient cultures. Traditional PaperCut artworks are designed to evoke the happiness of festivals, children and animals while demonstrating an affinity with nature. Surely these pieces from Hardwick & Cesko live up to the traditional roots of this wonderful art form!
About the Artist
Ai Meng Meng Ai has been practicing the art of Paper-cutting for 17 years. Self taught in her home village in the north of China, she was drawn to this ancient art form by it's rich history which is embedded and, in many ways chronicles, the last 1500 years of Chinese history and culture. Playing with scale by using tiny silhouettes of humans dancing, playing or interacting with animals and often juxtaposing them with over-sized trees brimming with animal life, she displays her respect for both the natural world and humanities symbiotic relationship with it. The almost primitive forms contained within the works are enhanced by the monochromatic nature of the medium and help maintain an enviable simplicity, despite the intricacy of the artworks themselves. There is so much visual vocabulary present in her works that they almost talk, sing and breathe life into a home.
