Myriam Dion

We love it when artists reuse materials and incorporate them into their design.  Canadian artist Myriam Dion cuts rich textural patterns reminiscent of embroidered lacework right into latest edition of newspapers pages such as The Financial Times, International Herald Tribune and Le Devoir to name a few. She is careful to respect whatever newspaper she is transforming, invents new scenes, landscapes and narratives within the pages to bring the newspaper’s stories to life. On an article in Huffpost the French-Canadian artist says this about her work:

“By crafting thoughtful mosaics out of the world events, I question our appetite for sound-bite news and sensational art, showing the quiet power of a patient hand and an inquisitive eye.  I am creating a new newspaper that can be interpreted, that encourages people to think more deeply about the news that we consume too easily.”

  The artist can be followed on her website and on Instagram.
