Kim Rugg: Cut-up artist. Amazing!

Kim Rugg is a Canadian visual artist who uses a very sharp knife and a lot of patience and glue to turn newspapers, stamps and other paper ephemera into delightful and demented art like newspapers in which all the type has been rearranged in alphabetical order. The work is a beautiful and provocative commentary on the form and content of print media.

She also deconstructs stamps by cutting them into intricately small pieces and reassembling them into whimsical shapes. As often as not, they are accepted by the post and are delivered!
