cut.paste at ANCA Gallery

Wednesday 15 – Sunday 26 July
cut.paste is a survey of contemporary collage-based practice including paper and digital collage, assemblage, objects and new media works.

Curated by Narelle Phillips, Gallery Development Officer at ANCA, the exhibition illustrates the pathway artists take from the starting point of paper based works. Some linger with cut/ripped/folded and rolled paper without divergence perfecting their techniques and working their way through amassed materials of personal significance, historical collections, propaganda and ephemera. Some enjoy the subversive nature of disconnecting and reconnecting images.
Others add three dimensional objects and move into assemblage, exploring how cutting and pasting can be replicated with weightier materials, and still others mix it up further by refining their collage with digital wizardry through scanning, photoshopping and animation arriving at a decidedly 21st century presentation of collage which is edgy and techno-savvy.

Exhibiting artists are – Alex Asch, Jacqueline Baker, Catherine Bennetts Cash, Amarie Bergman, Jacqueline Bradley, Julie Bradley, Caroline Carruthers, Gary Deirmendjian, Yuri Doric, Ampersand Duck, Elizabeth Faul, Rebecca Hanrahan, Stephanie Hicks, Caroline Huf, Blaide
Lallemand, Susannah Low, Clare Martin, Karen Milder, Mat de Moiser, Paul Murray, Amanda O’Sullivan, Louise Pinder, Genevieve Swifte, Andrew Townsend and Kirsty White.
