Charlene Asato joins us from the Big Island and has enjoyed creating with paper for many years. She finds it very exciting that a simple fold changes a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional form and artist’s books provide a wonderful avenue to convey this energy.

In "Puppetry in Paradise" from PechaKucha Night Cairns Vol. 20, Danielle Henderson is trained in theatre, performance and media arts. She is a passionate entertainer, writer/ storyteller and occasional singer living in Cairns, Far North Queensland. Since becoming a mother her attention has turned to visual art forms, specifically Scherenschnitte, or silhouette paper cutting. Her work is exceptionally detailed and has a pure uncomplicated visual appeal which lends itself poetically to shadow play. In 2013 Danielle wrote and performed I Live Here - a shadow puppet theatre experience for children.
Seeking more colourful and less solitary creative engagements she has more recently facilitated a community arts project for children and families. Her latest work is pushing her interest in puppet making into 3 dimensions.
BY MICHAEL VELLIQUETTE
@ VOL 26
ON APR 12, 2018
Best known for his elaborate, colorful paper sculptures, the artist Michael Velliquette will talk about his recent monochrome series. Velliquette hand cuts paper shapes and assembles them into complex forms akin to sacred architecture and three-dimensional mandalas. The formal symmetry, balance, and order of these works are meant to evoke a sense of visual equanimity. Velliquette forgoes his prior use of vibrant color, instead employing an emotionally restrained palette of pastels and neutrals. Beginner’s Mind refers to an approach to living without preconception—a sensibility that characterizes the skillfully simple posture Velliquette brings to his new work.
