Auction Description

2021 Smithsonian Craft Show - Lucrezia Bieler by Lucrezia Bieler
My work is focused on themes that discuss the balance of nature and how nature touches our souls. I cut paper with scissors because to me the material and the production process reflect the delicacy and also the fragility of nature. All things are interconnected and interwoven and have an impact on each other. My work discusses the interactions in nature: the eternal flow of life. The process of scissors cutting (Scherenschnitt) is like woodcutting or sculpting, in that you start with a blank resource and create the art by cutting parts of it away. All of my cuttings are cut out of a single sheet of paper; that means that the remaining design is still one piece of paper. I am able to cut lines that are no thicker than a thread. This allows smallest details. The final art piece is glued onto white paper. I glue the paper only at selected places. This adds depth because the unglued parts are not flush with the matting board. I use these subtle depths differences also to guide the eye of the viewer over the artwork and have the image cast shadows. Read more
