Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen | Cut Work

“CUT – WORK” uses a surgeon’s scalpel to create spontaneous images. A clear mind and a steady hand guide Elizabeth Gregory–Gruen in her exploration into shadow and light .

Each image is initiated in the top layer of paper. An adhesive is added and another layer of paper , this layer is cut … the process continues, until a total reverse relief is created. The organic images defined in the numerous layers of paper capture light and create shadows changing with each moment.
