Artist's Website Ketubah & Jewish Papercuts
Jerusalem artist Archie Granot is one of the leading paper cut artists in the world. His creative papercuts - the ketubah, mizrach, mezuzah, birkat habayit (blessing for the Jewish home) and more - both revive and continue a traditional Jewish art form while innovating against it. Distinguished by multiple layers of paper, Granot produces creative and beautiful papercuts - complex and impressive works, each cut with surgical scalpel, require a lengthy and intuitive process of creation, a process often hidden beneath the multiple layers of paper. Curves and links are interwoven creating incredible depth, texture and movement to which limited and careful use of gold leaf and woven papers only adds. Archie Granot use of Hebrew inscriptions, handcut in astonishingly precise calligraphic letters in his papercuts, is an integral part of his work.
