November Art Show: Marika Grossman
Please stop by the Ethel Weymouth Galley this November to view the work of papercut artist Markia Grossman.
"A blank piece of paper intrigues me with its vast ocean of possibilities - ways of transformation into a work of art, a story. Papercutting is a natural way of expression for me, a quest akin to that of a sculptor: begin a dialogue with the blank state of a medium, understand its essence and reveal it to eyes by chiseling away, or cutting out, those chips of stone, or paper scraps, that veil the soul. The lace of intertwined shapes and empty, cut-out, spaces, have always reminded me of a tree – with its leaves, brunches, buds, creatures that live in its sphere - birds, insects, bees, squirrels - children in tree houses, parents, families in homes around, lives, stories, people, worlds – a Tree of Life indeed. It is this Tree that I celebrate in my papercut stories. In my work with paper I am inspired by Hans Christian Andersen, with his tales and his scissors - a storyteller like no other.”
