A peek at Nia May's 'Paper & the Blade'

An Exhibition of Papercuts by Nia May

Saturday 17th September - Wednesday 15th October

My papercuts illustrate a curious, two-dimensional world of foxes, teapots, skeletons, birds and little girls lost. There are no brushstrokes or subtle distinctions of tone and shade in this place – only the edge the scalpel creates – evoking a benign kind of humour and wistfulness for the folly and fantasy of childhood. I make them by using a sharp knife while drinking lots of tea; and my house is often filled with confetti.
