About the Art

Fascinated by the infinite potential of paper as a medium, artist Krista Reuter blurs the lines between drawing and sculpture. Working with layers of paper, she builds undulating surfaces separated by air, allowing beautiful shadows to form from the edges. These shadows cast delicate lines or colors onto the next, appearing to flow and breathe as the viewer’s perspective shifts. As if to celebrate a moment of wonder, the work slows the viewer’s gaze and offers an intriguing effect that arouses curiosity and encourages a closer look.
