Jennifer Falck Linssen’s work is featured in the Fall 2009 Surface Design Journal in a six-page article, Katagami Inversions: Jennifer Falck Linssen’s Carved Paper Sculptures, by Ginger Knowlton. The article features five dramatic images of hand-carved cotton paper vessels from Linssen’s four-part sculpture series, Wave and Water, Fire and Emotion, Earth, and Wind.

In Knowlton’s view, “[the] process of transference, and of the imagined, is what seems to drive the artist: an exploration between real/physical/tangible and tenuous/ ethereal/potential. On the one level, there is the dynamic between negative and positive space constructed through paper carving, air and light passing through the small pieces of fiber cut away from a larger whole. But there is also the sweep and curve of a vessel filled with…nothing, but in this sense, everything — all of the potential of the absence of the missing elements. This is where Linssen’s sculpture becomes water, or fire, in that essential empty space at once created and surrounded by earth and air elements.
