A Cut Above / aka In Taglio

In April 2017 “In Taglio”, curated by Liz Gordon and Cynthia Penna of Art1307, opened in Naples, Italy.

Our companion exhibition “A Cut Above” features works from “In Taglio” featured artists: Richard Aber, Emilia Castioni, Syuta Mitomo, Diane Silver, Nicola Torcolli and Carla Viparelli as well as newly included works by Lorraine Bubar and Ann Weber.

Throughout history many different mediums and materials have been utilized by artists in acts of creation. The works of our eight featured artists rely predominantly upon the art of cutting. The tools to accomplish this vary amongst the artists – scissors, xacto knives, razors, box cutters or other bladed tools serve as the genesis of their handiwork. The necessity for physical dexterity is paramount for the repetitive action and precision of the cut.

The artists chosen materials range from various types of paper, foam, canvas, fabric and cardboard – each stripped bare of its original function, manipulated and wholly repurposed to meet the artist’s intent.
