Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen Biography : Works on Paper, Cut Work
  • CUT WORK
  •  
  • Cut Work is an evolving examination of emotion, using original imagery created in a free, hand cut action technique employing a surgeon's scalpel. 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 and 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.
