Elisa Contemporary Art is pleased to present "Paper Cuts"

Elisa Contemporary Art is pleased to present our new gallery exhibit, Paper Cuts.  This group show features four artists all creating dimensional artwork from cut paper.  The exhibit opens on Thursday, February 15 and runs through April 26 at the Riverdale NY Gallery.  The featured artists are: Amy Genser, Ana Marie Hernando, Don Morris and Heidi Whitman.
The exhibit highlights the intricate and highly detailed processes of creating dimensional work from Paper.   Our artists use knives and scissors to carefully sculpt each paper.   The interconnectedness of each element creates the patterns that draw the viewer into the work with shadows adding intense drama and another dimension.
Amy Genser creates dimensional artwork with paper and paint to explore her obsession with texture, pattern, and color.  Heidi Whitman’s paper constructions resemble city grids, ancient ruins and blueprints, but they also act as metaphors for the complicated processes of the mind.  For Don Morris, his former training as a plastic surgeon has provided the precision for his multi-dimensional and textural comic book constructions. The exhibit also includes a limited edition hand collaged piece by Argentinian artist, Ana Marie Hernando.
