paper

You already know that I love paper cuttings, right? basically all my artwork at the moment is paper cuttings. So of course I went to this exhibition, the only problem was that I had an screaming baby so I had to do it very fast. And it was packed with people. But, the work exhibited was just stunning with some enormous pieces, you just can’t believe the size. I love that Matisse didn’t waste any moment of his life, as soon as he found he couldn’t paint anymore, he decided to go into painted paper cutting with the help of assistants, and that he was absolutely determined to keep making art. What an inspirational man! The colours, the nature, the patterns, beautifully curated, I could almost describe it as a little hug to the soul!
You can see a video of the exhibition made by Tate Modern.
It is on at the Tate Modern until September 7th
