Annie Vought has an infatuation with text. Her paper cut letters are skeletons of found handwritten notes and letters, carved out with an Exact-o knife. Despite it’s delicate nature, Vought’s works are a visual demonstration of the long-lasting strength of words.
Vought’s patience and precision in etching out each leaf of paper is as if she is exposing her bones to her audience. The vulnerability of the pieces is a beautiful display of how thousands of words–literally–can sometimes speak more than a simple picture.
