Swedish artist Fideli Sundqvist‘s ‘Still Life’ series are part of her ongoing ‘Papercut’ project. Her work reminds me of the classic still life paintings you’d typical come across in an art gallery or an art history book and the magazine food style images you salivate over in the Sunday papers; carefully arranged food, tables set for a feast, ingredients ready to cook for a king. They are so technically accomplished, beautifully lit, the detail so exquisite. If you like what you see here you should defintely check out her other paper cut works. Here’s how she describes her work process:
I have a bunch of ideas that I walk around and think about, and some of them are stronger than others. suddenly one idea could turn up with new pictures, stories or moods. after that I think: ‘I must do this’. I have a pretty long starting time. it’s like I have to collect and get in a mood to “kickstart” me up. As soon as I get going I produce quite fast. I am usually completely swallowed up in my project and then the idea and content take shape. The actual work itself is self-generating. during my working process new ideas and solutions occur. then comes the harder part when I must end the project.
I dare to drop it, since I am a kind of perfectionist.
