Lamont Gallery Presents "Cut Up/Cut Out" @ Lamont Gallery | Exeter | New Hampshire | United States

From an excavated comic book to a hand-cut decorative rubber tire, the works in “Cut Up/Cut Out” use historic techniques of paper cutting to reflect contemporary concerns in transformative ways. Cut paper art practices span the globe from kamikiri, the cut paper performance art of Japan, to the elaborate papel picado of Mexico. “Cut Up/Cut Out” features over 50 artists working across the United States and internationally, who repurpose leaves, Tyvek, maps, back issues of the New York Times, plywood and cash register rolls to re imagine the world. Cultural pride, historical memory, environmental crises, consumerism and scientific visualization are all potent sources of inspiration. The artists employ a variety of methods to produce their work, from cutting shapes by hand using X-acto knives, to creating intricate, large-scale works with computer-aided design software and plasma cutters. Poetic and powerful, the works in “Cut Up/Cut Out” will astonish, delight and intrigue.
