Anne-Karin Furunes

Amazingly, these are not photographs but instead exist somewhere on the line between painting and sculpture. They are the work of Norwegian artist, Anne-Karin Furunes, who creates these images by making thousands of hand-punched holes in a canvas that has been painted with black acrylic paint. In a way, the image emerges as she removes pieces of the canvas, much like a sculptor working with a block of stone. She is able to capture the subtle highlights by simply varying the size of the hole. I encourage you to watch the video, as it shows some good close-ups of the work and gives you a good idea of the scale. Truly amazing.
