Cut up / Cut out

Exhibition with Nathalie Boutté

Bedford Gallery
Lesher Center for the Arts
Walnut Creek, USA

December, 18, 2016 - March, 5, 2017

The artists of Cut Up/Cut Out explore this ancient method of decorative piercing and cutting, but extend their media to include paper, cloth, metal, wood, rubber and much more. The transformative nature of cutting into and through a surface provides endless possibilities for converting the material from opaque to transparent, from flat to sculptural, from rigid to delicate, and from ordinary to exquisite. The process and precision required for this method of art-making is laborious, technically demanding, and always astonishing. Organized by the Bedford Gallery, this exhibition is slated to travel nationally.
