Mia Pearlman – Breathtaking Cut Paper Installations

Born in New York, currently residing in Brooklyn, artist Mia Pearlman creates breathtaking paper installations and ephemeral drawings that blur the line between actual, illusionistic and imagined space. Sculptural and often glowing with natural or artificial light, these imaginary weather systems appear frozen in an ambiguous moment, bursting through walls and windows, or hovering within a room.
