Minneapolis artist Sonja Peterson creates large-scale artworks, sculptures and installations from complex and intricately cut paper. The interplay between her colorful negative backgrounds, shadows, and foregrounds of paper provide a sense of movement and vibrancy to her subjects. Her works explore the flora, fauna, and the history of travelers above and below the world’s waters.
