Born in Australia, France, Czech Republic, Canada, and the United States, the seven artists – Jaq Belcher, Béatrice Coron, Michelle Forsyth, Reni Gower, Lenka Konopasek, Lauren Scanlon, and Daniella Woolf– bring a broad range of international perspectives to the art of paper cutting. This exhibition reveals the centuries-old tradition as an art form and as a process that transforms the medium of paper into contemporary meditations on culture, beauty, and the boundaries between nature and artifice. The results can deceive the viewer into believing that they are not seeing works formed out of the "simple" medium of paper. Papercuts was organized by Reni Gower, who is a Professor in Virginia Commonwealth University's Painting and Printmaking Department. This exhibition is sponsored in part by Virginia Commonwealth University and VCUarts.
