THE MATISSE EFFECT
“Painting with scissors.” This is How Herni Matisse use to call his cut out work after being diagnosed with cancer. He create organic surroundings like gardens and animals to make himself feel more accompanied.
My work is created with Cicadas, this animals are not as popular as butterflies but Cicadas have been featured in literature since the time of Homer‘s Iliad, and as motifs in decorative art from the Chinese Shang dynasty
Cicadas have been used as money, in folk medicine, to forecast the weather, to provide song (in China), and in folklore and myths around the world. In France, the cicada represents the folklore of Provence and the Mediterranean cities.
