“There is certain magic in creating an object that is strong, resistant, hard, and of impressive physical presence, made of thin, soft, weak and perishable material like paper. The challenge of overcoming this paradox enriches and encourages creativity. There is also charm and humor, deception and surprise of the observer. Paper works are always much lighter than their expected weight. Besides, this is an endless process of testing the material's potential abilities, while allowing the imagination to run wild with endless creativity and pure pleasure – both from the process and from the finished products”, describes Naama Aronson, one of the 43 artists participating in the Israeli paper artists’ book.
I have been fascinated for a long time by paper art in all its aspects, both in Israel and abroad, and get excited by the encounter with artists and their fascinating works. In the conversations I had with these artists I've learned that they find in paper a material that has inherent creative possibilities which are limitless. Some of them say they actually fell in love with paper and found in it the most appropriate medium for self expression. For this reason I chose to introduce in the book not only works but also the point of view, thoughts and unique “statement” of each of them - whatever they thought appropriate to contribute to the book. The book has plenty of photographs and explanations regarding various techniques and paper processing methods.
The book gives information regarding specific artists’ workshops, and much more.
