WVU Art Museum: CUT UP/CUT OUT

The transformative nature of cutting into and through a surface provides endless possibilities for converting a material from opaque to transparent, from flat to sculptural, from rigid to delicate, and from ordinary to exquisite. The process and precision required for this method of art-making is laborious, technically demanding, and always astonishing. Representing a diversity of styles and techniques, this exhibition brings together original works that span a variety of media – from paper and plastic to metal and rubber – by more than 50 artists from around the globe.

Cut Up/Cut Out was organized by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions, Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA
