About the Visions Series
Celebrate these four diverse artists and their installation with light refreshments.
Cut paper is the medium that brings these four artists together, and while each has developed personalized techniques to obtain unique styles and aesthetics, the fundamental materials are the same. Meditative in nature, the cutting of paper is a slow, deliberate, and often solitary practice that lends itself to a magical quality. In order to create with cut paper, the artist must first destroy, an alchemical process, speaking to the divine dichotomy of creation and destruction.
