Pinpricks on paper

This work is unique.

Hundreds of pin-pricks create this abstract image on paper. 

Demi Overon creates minimalist artwork through the labour-intensive and repetitive action of piercing sheets of paper with a single needle. Demi describes her process as "pushing and testing the materiality and delicacy of paper".

The resulting image of this painstaking process gives the viewer an immense sense of awe and calm. 

Demi Overton studied Fine Art at Newcastle University.
