A collection of the paper cut artwork that McClure has done for several years worth of calendars. Gorgeous. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810993309, Hardcover)

Collect Raindrops celebrates the important things: the change of seasons, slowing down the world for a moment so we can actually taste it, looking up at the stars to dream. Artist Nikki McClure’s delicate images exude an optimism that revolves around community, sustenance, parenting, and appreciating both the urban and rural landscape through a visual language that is uniquely her own.

Armed with an X-acto knife, McClure painstakingly cuts out her images from a single sheet of black paper, creating a bold language that translates the complex poetry of motherhood, nature, and activism into a simple and endearing picture. The delicate nature of her work draws the eye, as each element has to be connected to the one next to it in some way, creating a fragile network of shapes and lines.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:50:18 -0400)

Collects images created by the author for her calanders, some simple and others more complicated as they depict tasks, feelings, and sensations suggested by each season.
