Scissor – cut

Our Dover Print & Drawing Club meetings (online via zoom since the 1st lock-down) are the perfect opportunity to relax amongst friends and create. There is no need to leave the house, hurry to a particular venue, or transport heavy materials; everything falls easily to hand within the comfort of the home studio.

Last Monday, after a full-on day, the evening club meeting presented an opportunity to chill for a while and explore shapes without any preconceived ideas. I usually cut collages with a medical scalpel, but this time I decided to just cut some paper with an ordinary pair of steel hand scissors, and see what might happen. Finding that I was enjoying the uneven line of each cut, I began layering the cut paper rather akin to a manual desktop form of Photoshop, moving shapes around before pausing some designs by holding the various elements in place with small strips removable tape. The four examples below had evolved in a similar manner, before settling upon their current form and paper finally fixed in place with permanent adhesive.
