A world cut from paper by Nermin Er

www.galerinevistanbul.com

İstanbul’s Gallery Nev is currently hosting a collection of fascinating and unique works of art made of paper cutouts by artist Nermin Er. The show, which is the artist’s second solo exhibition, features miniature three-dimensional paper work made with a scalpel.

“Material is something everybody uses somehow if she is engaged in art,” says the young artist, who began her craft at a very early age, in an interview with Today’s Zaman. “You explore the possibilities of the materials you have. You try to find out what you can do and how to get the effect you want in different ways,” she adds.
