Then and Only
This series of paper cuts by Rosa Leff started as an exploration of home. As the collection expanded to include images of various cities around the globe, it became clear to the artist that the work was actually a reﬂection of the interconnectedness of time, self, and place. No matter how many times we dine in a favorite restaurant, stand on a particular corner, or wait at the same train station, our experience of these moments will be somewhat different each time. Each piece is hand cut from a single sheet of paper. The works featured in Then and Only are based upon photographs Leff took in Japan, China, Puerto Rico, Philadelphia, Portland Oregon, Orlando Florida, and Baltimore.
