Collect Raindrops by Nikki McClureJuxtapoz // Thursday, 24 May 2007
Using only an X-Acto knife, a single sheet of paper, and the inspiration that surrounds her and her home in Olympia, Washington, she creates her intricate and beautiful paper cuts. Her work constructs a bold graphic language that translates the complex poetry of family, nature, and activism into endearing, positive, disarmingly powerful images.
Since 1998, Nikki has been makeing a yearly calendar composed of paper-cuts, noting the changes in the seasons and orbit. As the calendar evolved, so too did her following. Collect Raindrops marks the first published compilation of her calendar art.
