'Proof Perfect / SmPapercuts 8,' by Reni Gower

Proof Perfect / SmPapercuts 8
Acrylic on hand cut paper

Proof Perfect / SmPapercuts 8 is comprised of 8 unique (22" x 22") papercuts. Each papercut was created with stencils comprised of multiple motifs inspired by Islamic geometric designs. The stencils are traced in a nine-square grid and hand cut using a snap blade utility knife. The paper was painted on the reverse side with two or more colors to create optical reflections. Patterns of color and light visibly and conceptually expand the work beyond its borders. For the viewer, these effects sustain a slower more introspective (spiritual and/or emotional) response.

Each 26" x 26" unit is framed in hand polished aluminum with recessed matting that enhances the reflective color and cast shadows.
