Jen Stark (1983 -) is a contemporary artist whose majority of work involves creating paper sculptures.
Her artwork mimics intricate patterns and colors found in nature while exploring ideas of replication and infinity.
Stark takes construction or acid-free colored paper and intricately cuts each sheet with an X-acto knife, layering the paper into a topographical landscape of color and bold shapes.
Stark’s works have been inspired by many things around the natural world such as infinity, topographical maps, fractals, designs in nature, microscopic patterns, wormholes and sliced anatomy.
In her own words, “I love thinking about how enormous shapes out in the universe can have the same patterns as tiny microorganisms under a microscope.”
“How geometric shapes and certain spiraling patterns apply to designs in nature big and small.”
