When people ask me in which art medium I prefer, I say rather apologetically, "paper cutting." My impression is that they think of ladies snipping tulips and birds in the 80's as a craft activity. Certainly, I do some craftsy paper cutting, but not all of my work is that. I feel, somehow, that if I could answer "painting" or "sculpture" people would have a greater frame of reference and respect. I have totally forgotten that one of the greats was a paper cutter. How on earth do I not think immediately of Henri Matisse?
