Artist Michael Velliquette creates minutely detailed installations constructed from thousands of cut pieces of paper, each textured and layered over the next.
When an exhibition closes, though, these large, painstakingly made artworks may not have another home. Some could be lost, documented only in photos Velliquette, an associate faculty member in the University of Wisconsin-Madison art department, has taken himself.
