Opening reception for Paper Pushers a group exhibition guest curated by Rob de Oude & Mel Prest featuring Sarah Bednarek, Hedwig Brouckaert, Joan Grubin, Nils Karsten, Paul Loughney, Francesca Pastine, Zachary Royer Scholz, Viviane Rombaldi Seppey, Oriane Stender, and Lawrence Swan.

Taking a two-pronged approach toward the use of paper, this exhibition brings together works that are composed of re-purposed materials, applied in a rhythmic and serial manner. On one hand the works share the choice of materials and on the other hand introduces a shared esthetic. In transforming the properties of the material the artists are employing a sculptural and/or reductive approach to the possibilities of working with paper.
By cutting, folding, weaving, bending, collage-ing and sewing these artists explore the diverse properties and applications of paper while moving away from utilizing it’s illusionistic aspects. The manifold possibilities of paper, combined with its humble nature, make it the preferred material for a democratic and direct approach as an artist medium.
