Intricacy

Paper is beauty, pure, simple beauty. I go nuts over a pile of new, white printer paper, so imagine my euphoria when I found myself face to face with the work of Maude White, an artist who takes paper, cuts it and creates magic.

I have great respect for paper. When I cut, the thin membranous material reveals its strength to me. No matter how small my cuts the paper holds. There is a certain comfort in that, a comfort I enjoy. I feel that there are very few things in the world as reliable and constant as paper. Paper is everywhere and it has been telling stories for centuries. By respecting and honoring paper for what it is, and not considering it a stepping-stone to something greater, I feel like I am communicating some of the pleasure it brings to me. I am not creating for Art’s sake. I am creating for Paper’s sake, to make visible the stories that every piece of paper attempts to communicate to us. – Maude White.
