waste paper becomes sacred
the beauty of art
This poem is a tribute to Eloa Jane’s stunning paper art. I found her art at a local gallery called Art Ventures. She creates 3D paintings, sculptures, and functional art from recycled paper that she rolls, paints, and arranges into complex, colorful creations like the two in this post. What I love is that Eloa found a creative way to live her values about sustainability. Rather than preaching sustainability, she set out to be sustainable, and now her art reflects the beauty and complexity of her life journey. You can learn more about Eloa and her art on her website. Enjoy!
