The Intricate Handcut Paper World of Maud White

I come from a family of visual storytellers. I have always believed that our vision is as important as our hearing when we communicate. Very rarely do we rely on words alone. It is what we see, and how our brains interpret what we see that shapes our perceptions and actions. I began cutting paper with that understanding. I want my art to communicate to the observer what my words cannot do effectively.

When I was a child I thought a great deal about hidden spaces. The intimacy, the hushed secrecy – I was always looking underneath objects, or through them. I have always believed that if you look hard enough, you will see something precious and new, or, perhaps, something incredibly ancient and sacred.

Current show is at the fantastic Merge Restaurant in downtown Buffalo, NY! Show runs through June

This is the original sketch I had done for the Occult Swap for Ten Paces and Draw. It spawned a new way of planning my work, so I actually finished it too!

Faith ( to Buffy ) : You’re all about control. You have no idea what it’s like on the other side!  Where nothing’s in control, nothing makes sense!  There is just pain and hate and nothing you do means anything. You can’t even…

Important to note that Wal-Mart (and other big corporations with deplorable business practices) is often the best–or only–option for lower-income people. But those who can afford to boycott should.
