Lola Dupre


 
Like many traditional collage artist, the Glasgow-based Lola Dupré makes all her work out of simply paper, scissors and glue. But unlike most artists Lola goes further than relying on a simple juxtaposition of imagery to make a point. Instead she uses multiple copies of source material, using thousands of cuts and manipulating tiny shards of paper to create a strange, amorphous, almost fractal vision.  Her work is like looking at a dissolving reality reflected in a spoon.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
In a recent interview on the Empty Kingdom blog, Lola says this of her modus operandi:

t came about through experiments with paper as a sculptural medium, through a chance arrangement in 3D forms I began to think about applying it in 2D.  I guess the work could say a few different things about me; I think I am meticulous and multi-dimensional as a person, perhaps that comes across in my work, I’m not sure.  In my opinion, I create, and it is up to the viewer to decipher things and find meaning.
