Harpies (Vengeful Flock): This series is an elaboration on the paper cuts from the past. Largely it is an expressionist diversion away from the literalness and narrative qualities of the paper cuts which were either done on commission or following a literary theme, such as the cantos of Dante’s Inferno. Still, the mood of the Inferno persists, with its buffeted and frenzied figures, as well as nods toward traditional ornament which the paper cuts expressed so explicitly. Forms that appear recognizable confound the imagination upon closer inspection. Are they dancers? Angels? Demons?
