Sarah Lake – Echiche

Original, Paper Art | 60 × 43 cm | Framed


Out of stock

Echiche means ‘thinking’ in Igbo – a language spoken in West Africa. Realising that the West African Chimpanzee is critically endangered is clearly running through this one’s mind. He is sat deep in his thoughts looking up and hoping for change.



Sarah Lake is a self taught paper artist living in Kent. With a love of wildlife, most of her work is based on that theme. Every piece starts off with a photograph. The more layers there are, the more detail there will be in the final artwork. Each layer is then cut by hand using a scalpel. Sarah’s aim with each piece of her work is that it is indistinguishable at a distance from a regular picture, and only when seen up close does the viewer discover individual layers of paper.
