Found Paper Becomes Art in rock, scissors, paper at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

Posted October 8, 2009 in Press Releases

Coming to the Artist Hall at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, rock, scissors, paper features the work of five artists (from the U.S., England, and Taiwan) who use commercially printed found paper in their work.

From cutting to folding, stitching, layering and collage, Claire Brewster, Renata Lucia, Inca Pan, former HCCC resident artist Lisa Qualls, and Wonil Suh use found pages, scraps, and prints in their work—sometimes as the sole material and sometimes as an element. Using found papers as a visual element or a social commentary began in the early 20th Century and is used more and more often, as artists recycle and reuse cast-away papers from their environment. Come see how these artists have created installations, quilts, illustrations, and even clothing with paper.
