- Folk paper-cut; Signified; Signifier; A semiotic system
Chinese folk paper-cut is an artistic sign of materialization. This art is the sign associated with the creator's certain expressive meanings. The artistic creation for the folk paper-cut is the process from a complete signifier (the form of a sign) to the higher-level signified (the concept or object that’s represented) of complex meanings. This means that paper-cutting art possesses the symbolic system attributes of artistic expression media. The application of symbolic sign language in paper-cut not only highlights the cultural nature of folk art, but also builds a rich semiotic system for the folk paper-cut.
