These topological paper cuts of freshwater lakes (and bays, and islands) are the most beautiful, simple paper art I've seen in a long while. The Etsy shop owner, Marnie, makes these from her home in Shorewood, Minnesota, just west of the Twin Cities.
These pieces show nature and form distilled into its most minimalist structure. One day, I'd like to make something like this, too, perhaps of the Far Rockaways. Where I live now feels very cluttered, but I imagine that beneath all those trees, roads, construction, houses and people - there's something incredibly simple. Breathtakingly elegant without even trying.
