Wood Paper Scissors: Raw Materials in Art

I’m thrilled to be working with The Art Shop and participating in their second pop-up group exhibition of the year. Wood Paper Scissors: Raw Materials in Art, will feature a brand new series of pattern mixing paper-cuts I’ve been working on over the summer and fall. My work can also be purchased through their online shop.

Participating artists:
Rachael Ashe, Lydia Cecilia, Ben Evely, Susan Jessop, Aaron Moran, David Ullock, and Kalvin Valko.

The Art Shop (TAS) presents its second Pop Up exhibition of local emerging artists in Vancouver. Wood, Paper, Scissors: Raw Materials in Art, aims to demonstrate and facilitate an approach to viewing and understanding contemporary art starting from its materiality. Exhibiting artists whose artistic process includes the use of what could be perceived as uncommon materials, the exhibition illustrates the immense possible definitions of what constitutes a work of art.
The participating artists work with materials of strong and natural qualities; from repurposed wood, to hand dyed fabrics, to paper cutting and collage. Transforming what was once its own raw entity into a work of art – the artists reconsider, repurpose, and redefine how art can differ from the traditional paint on canvas. The physical and technical aspects become the focus, allowing an access point for the viewer to recognize and relate to the artworks.
