JD DehneJD Dehne

JD Dehne is a St. Louis artist and graduate of Fontbonne University.  JD’s paper works, attempt to address the question, “what can be done with a single sheet of paper?”  He starts with nothing more than a single sheet of paper, then he cuts, folds, and manipulates the page to form an image that creates unique shadows and is aesthetically pleasing while telling a story. In these works, the whole image along with the resulting shadows create a complex work influenced by his fascination with the interplay between light and manipulated paper.
