Collection: Constructed Realities

Stunningly Intricate Papercut Art by Jennifer York in an Exhibition at Wild Dunes Resort

Each piece invites us to explore imagery of the Lowcountry - wrought iron gates from downtown Charleston, tidal marshlands, ships and lighthouses. Through these massive snowflake-like Tyvek papercuts, Artist Jennifer York creates evocative new compositions, with both a sense of familiarity and mystery.

The exhibition includes “Epic Papercuts” created on a large scale from Tyvek house wrap, “Mirrored Vistas” composed of vintage mirrors and scenic papercut overlays, “Shadow Houses” architecturally detailed and hand-cut, as well as “Sky Chapel” a laser cut steel sculpture.

Jennifer York grew up in rural Indiana, earned a BFA in Sculpture with Art History minor from Pratt Institute and an MFA in Fibers from Savannah College of Art and Design.
