If you are looking for something to do today amongst all of the amazing art shows on this weekend in New York, I have just the thing for all paper enthusiasts. Be sure to stop by Art On Paper Exhibition at Pier 36, Paradigm Gallery + Studio - Booth E1. They will be showing four artists that I think are a must see. In order above from left to right, Charles Clary, Seth Clark, Kelly Kozma and Alex Eckman-Lawn. There is a range from cut paper collage, mixed media paper reliefs, to hole-punched paper and photographs forming new pieces. You have until tomorrow, so be sure to swing through!Paradigm Gallery + Studio, Art on Paper New York 2017 seen first on Strictlypaper

I have the pleasure of sharing with you a new exhibition that opened only two days ago entitled Deep Cuts: Contemporary Paper Cutting which will be on view at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire.
This exhibition showcases the works of contemporary artists who reconsider, redefine and even subvert the centuries-old practice of paper cutting. In the tradition of the craft, the art to be featured in the exhibition is impressive as well as intricate, but its subject matter has been updated for the 21st century. Addressing deeper personal or social themes, the works will touch upon complex reference points including the various cultural, economic and environmental associations imbued in the humble medium of paper.Deep Cuts: Contemporary Paper Cutting Exhibition seen first on Strictlypaper
Toronto based studio Light + Paper run by Ali Harrison, has a focus on incredibly detailed reimagined cut paper designs of human organs. Each piece is first hand drawn and then hand-cut on white paper by freehand. Once complete, they hold organic patterns true to their origin. Her pieces take anywhere from 20-60 hours to complete... WOW! You can purchase any of her incredibly detailed works through her shop on Light + Paper, where she offers original hand-cut art pieces, as well as laser cut reproductions in both paper and wood. For a limited time get our Female Reproductive System Tee with all proceeds going towards Planned Parenthood!
"I define what I do as drawing with a knife. when I cut paper, it is a visceral reaction and natural response to my roots and affection for precision, detail, and subtlety." -- Bovey Lee
You may remember our introduction of Bovey Lee some time ago where we showcased her mastery of working with Chinese rice paper on silk all hand cut with delicate patience to produce these divinely intricate and beautiful works. She now has a new series that is just as stunning if not even more.
