Turning over a beautiful leaf!

Yet another wonderful item sent across to me by neighbours Dordie and Bill.

Delicate Leaf Cuttings By Omid Asadi

My name is Omid Asadi and I currently live in Manchester, United Kingdom. I created this work with carving and cutting techniques on actual fallen leaves using a craft knife and a needle. I always try to create pieces with a message, not just beautiful art. Some of these messages or ideas come from my world view, poems, stories, global problems and philosophy. I’m also inspired by other artists’ and designers’ works.

Here’s the man in action.

I use a craft knife or scalpel and needle. It is not like a paper cutting because each part needs a certain pressure to cut. If I make a mistake, I destroy maybe hundreds of hours of work.

Leaf's Mind. I’m very attentive to beautiful fallen leaves. Suddenly,  I started SEEING them, not simply looking at them.

Carriage. I believe that we look at many things everyday, but don’t SEE them.  For example, apples had been falling from trees for thousands of years,  but only Isaac Newton truly saw that and, thanks to him,  our lives have changed forever.

    1. When Jean and I reviewed the post yesterday evening and could see the work on a large screen, we had exactly the same reaction with regard to the patience and accuracy portrayed.

  2. Whenever I need a bit of a pick-me-up I read your blog, Paul. I always find something interesting/heartwarming/or beautiful. This post meets all 3 categories. I simply love the dandelion photo! Chris

    1. Chris, you see it’s fabulous responses like yours that keep me going and have done for so many years. My long-winded way of saying thank you. Mind you, I’m afraid tomorrow’s post doesn’t fit into the heartwarming category.
