Things are not as they seem. Honestly this one took me a few minutes of staring before i really got it too… Brooklyn boy Paul Ahern sent me over to check out his Cardboardistry. It seems that he carves away at cardboard with an x-acto knife, and the result is this inverted stencil look - as if you were making lithographs with acid? Cutting away to expose the corrugations to form images… Its a brilliant concept that you could almost compare to that old school copper scraping technique - only making a more interesting use of everyday materials. You really must see the larger images of them to get a real look at how sweet this work is!
