The First Cut Exhibition

FirstCutExhibLast week I hopped on a train to Manchester to catch The First Cut exhibition at the Manchester Art Gallery before it closed there at the weekend. It was truly beautiful and so inspirational for someone like myself as a designer who cuts and crafts using paper as a material. The work by 31 international artists who cut, sculpt and manipulate paper, made the exhibition space feel almost like a fantasy film set and I was in awe with the detail in each individual piece. It was wonderful to see work by the ever talented Sarah Bridgland and Rob Ryan and discover stunning new work by Andy Singleton amongst others. The exhibition will be touring and showing at Djanogly Art Gallery Nottingham 20th April – 9th June 2013 and Southampton SeaCity Museum 11th October 2013 – 12th January 2014
