Marisa Green (American, b. 1978) is a graphic designer, illustrator, and mixed media artist, primarily working in cut paper. Her artwork explores mathematics, connections, and meditation through the use of geometric shapes, patterns, and the art of physical repetition.
Michael McRobbie once wrote, "For many, (mathematics) represents the purest form of thought, offering us access to the truths that underlie the mysteries of physical reality." Marisa constructs thoughtful, time intensive installations out of cut paper, based upon numeric patterns and multiples of a single shape. When suspended together, these delicate shapes build upon one another amassing beautiful and massive forms that alter our physical reality. Like the stillness and depth of a forest, these life-like figures represent the fragility and impermanence associated with the natural world.
