Nikki McClure: Look Closely

These works are made by cutting a single sheet of black paper with an X-Acto blade and laying the fragile paper-cut atop a white or colored backing. It is in some ways a paradox that the strength in of these familial bonds is presented by the medium of knife and paper, by tearing, excising and cutting away. A science of subtraction, this method allows McClure to focus on negative space, while improvising as she goes.

Nikki McClure is well known around the Northwest for her calendars, books and paper goods. The works in this exhibit will be original cut-paper. McClure was most recently seen in a solo exhibition at the Bellevue Arts Museum in 2012. This is McClure’s first major exhibition with Stonington Gallery.
