In science classes, have you ever checked a microscope? If you ever used a microscope, you will imagine how patterns and motifs are. These geometrical shapes are called fractals. Fractals can be observed in the nature or human body as well. Surprisingly, inspired by these fascinating shapes, the famous artist Rogan Brown has been creating cut paper art. He imitates various organic formations such as cell structures, shells, microbes, and fossils with his art.
Some Examples of Robert Brown’s Paper Art
The artist tries to indicate the importance of environmental issues with his cut-paper art. For example, on his official website, the artist published a paper art in 2020. He says that he tried to capture and intricacy, beauty, and fragility of the coral reefs which became symbols of both global warming and man-made pollution effects. In addition, he draws attention to uniting to save coral reefs.
It is both great and strange to see that an artist tries to draw attention for didactic purposes. For example, in his other paper art, he mentions cytokinesis which is the final stage of cell division. In this stage the call wall fractures and splits in half. So, in the final 2 separate cells occur. With his cut paper art, the artist would like to remind his audience that our skin, nails, hair, etc refresh themselves. To sum up, cytokinesis happens in our bodies all the time.
So, we think that you all have an idea of Rogan Brown’s philosophy. He tries to show the world how fragile our world is and how wonderful our body, the Earth, etc.
We would like to give some brief information about the life of the artist as well. Rogan Brown is a British artist who lives in France currently. He has an MA from Queen Mary University. Moreover, he has won some awards such as Artslant Showcase, National Open Art Competition, etc. As a final sentence, we would like to mention that according to his statement, he can finish a cut paper art in 5 months!
