Pièce de Résistance - Suspended Paper Cut

Big reveal time! (For those of you who haven't seen it)  This piece was by far my largest paper cut in the exhibit "I Cut Paper: Art by Heather Clements."  It is 30"x40" and took about 50 hours.  It was definitely difficult creating this paper cut, especially in creating the floating system and framing it.  It all paid off, because I really love this piece.  It was the Pièce de résistance of the exhibit.

"Suspended" by Heather Clements. 30"x40" paper cut.

Here it is in the exhibit, in its custom frame.

Here is the back of the piece on the cutting mat before I added the spacers (to create a slight floating effect so that there are shadows created.)

"Suspended" is currently still displaying at Studio b. and is for sale.  Please contact me if you are interested.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this piece.  Please feel free to share your comments!


  1. Beautiful work. Very impressive!

  2. Heather, I've finally gotten to see some of your paper-cut work at the Coop now. I am truly impressed. Ecocide VI is eye-popping and engaging (if only I could afford it!). This one, "Suspended", looks absolutely remarkable! You are very gifted and one of the hardest working people/artists that I've ever met.


Your comments are greatly appreciated!
