I Love ripping! I love the pattern I can make with paper and ripping. I love how I can layer it, how I can put paint on top and make it look totally different. I love finding sketches in Frankie magazine and incorporating this into my own page. I love the uneven, imperfect, rough edges of ripping. It feels really human, really organic and really destructive and constructive at the same time. I love the sound that the paper makes when you rip it. I love that the shapes I make when I am ripping it is something I can’t control. I love how the paper curls as it gets smaller or thinner.
