Layla May Arthur is a Jersey born paper artist currently living in the Netherlands. Layla handcrafts each detail in her work to transform paper into a vehicle for narratives. She cuts elaborate patterns into the paper, sculpts, and layers the paper to create intricate worlds and plays with lighting to create shadows which interact with the surrounding environment. Often in her work, she invites the audience to step into her shadow projections to situate themselves and their interpretations quite literally within the work.
