GLORIOUS CUT PAPER

Paper Cutting:  Contemporary Artists, Timeless Craft

From the introduction by our friend Rob Ryan:

“Were you that kind of child that ate your way all around the edge of the hole in the middle of a cookie bit by bit with tiny teeth in little nibbles…  I was always busy jumping over and around the cracks in the sidewalk, and I looked up at the spaces in the sky that lay between the shapes made by crisscrossing telephone lines and power cables waiting for a jet plane or a bird to pass perfectly into the center of the frame that I had created in my head.  At that instant, I shut my eyes as if they were a camera shutter and captured that moment and made it mine.”

And I love the black and white work of  Beatrice Coron, which reminded me of the beautiful  end credits from Lemony Snicket by Jamie Callari:
