Works on paper have often been considered secondary to media such as sculpture or painting, thought of as visual research and preliminary material. Paper Cut challenges such ideas by offering an alternative view on art history via a dynamic and eclectic survey of a century of paper-based practice by Australian women artists, including Mary MacQueen, Barbara Brash, Lesbia Thorpe, Joy Hester, Jude Adams, Ann Newmarch, Rosella Namok, TextaQueen and many more.
These artists have utilised the inherent advantages of paper as a medium; it being readily accessible, flexible, adaptive and ephemeral. The resulting broad range of subject matter includes biting social critique and calls for change in the form of political posters and collages, editioned prints of still lifes and domestic interiors, and abstract renderings of landscape – historical and contemporary. A community residency space will encourage dialogue between printed material being produced now and objects from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art.
