Lisa Nilsson, a Rhode Island School of Design graduate, creates marvelous anatomical cross sections of the human body by rolling pieces of Japanese mulberry paper. The technique used in her Tissue Series is called paper filigree or quilling. The artist says that she had been aware of quilling growing up in the 70s, but hadn’t considered it as part of her art making vocabulary until seeing a religious reliquary in an antique store. Lisa’s interest in quilling is mainly in its compatibility with what she sees in anatomical cross sections.
