January 19 – March 2, 2013Ritter Art Gallery
Papercuts presents works by artists who manipulate, bend, and cut paper, creating unique pieces ranging from visual narratives to complex sculptural abstractions. Their works are bold statements that celebrate nuance, handmade craft, and a process that traces its origins back to 6th century China. Light, shadow, and color play key roles, transforming this ancient technique into a dynamism filled with delicate illusions.
