Yuko Takada Keller is a Japanese paper artist residing in Denmark and creates her wonderful installations using tiny pieces of hand coloured tracing paper. She has a lot of patience thats for sure! I don't think I'd be able to create something so fiddly! If you want to see more of her work then take a look over on her web site as there are many photos from previous exhibitions.
At the beginning of using tracing paper, I hoped my works would remind the viewer of something pure and natural in this world. Of course, I love and cherish the natural world, but I was interested in only the pure or beautiful world in nature. When I began to be conscious of a skin membrane in the tracing paper, I wanted to represent something more, not only pure or natural, in this world. It's sometimes in our mind.
