lt was simply love at first sight when l came across Elly MacKay’s paper theatre creations. Elly’s Paper Theatre Portfolio exhibits a rich plethora of 3-D visuals, enticing the imagination to overflow with story-telling imagery that leads one into enchanting worlds of make-believe.
l was particularly captivated by the piece (shown here) titled ‘Shadow-Play’. l adore the vintage illustration combined with the shadow technique.
The other element of the creations that l also find most endearing, are the words that Elly often writes to compliment her images.
eg.”Harvesting the Weather – She collected all types of weather, though she kept the autumn winds in a preferred spot in the top drawer of her collection cabinet”. How charming is this!
With much jubilation, l cordially invite you to take your seat at the Paper Theatre!
