Paper is a multifaceted element, rich in possibilities. This exhibition seeks to explore the role paper plays in works of art, as well as the wide variety that exists within the material itself.
For instance, notepad paper is an intimate surface, mainly used to document artists' most spontaneous thoughts and ideas. In this case, it is displayed for the viewer to see. Industrial paper, also present, is usually employed to make large-scale posters, wrap abundant extensions of cloth, or even produce wick. This makes it a unique material to draw or paint upon.
Paper can be used as a surface, as a means to highlight color or texture. It can also be manipulated through cutting and modeling, in order to create a three-dimensional feel. Paper can also operate as a plane. It can be altered with the intention of emphasizing on some of its characteristics, and in doing so, turning it into a protagonist in the work.
This exhibition seeks to explore the constancy and importance of paper in art, along with the variety and possibilities for creativity that it provides.
