Believing in Art

Artist Meg Hitchcock creates bewilderingly intricate works that really must be seen to be believed. Each work of papercraft has been painstakingly constructed of letters and words cut from all the major religious texts. The artist symbolically takes the words of religious texts and pieces them together to spell out the sayings of other religious texts. Through her art, Hitchcock celebrates spirituality in all its colors and shades, as well as highlights the interconnectedness of belief systems that, at least on the surface, may seem unconnected. Similarly, her artistic creations highlight the human need for relationships, with each other and with ‘the Other.’

Take a closer look below at a selection of her creations, and be sure to click to expand the images.
