Maude White is a paper cutting artist living in Buffalo, NY. She loves the great strength, yet delicacy of paper. Her work is done on the macro as well as the micro level. Every cut is exact and meaningful. She enjoys playing with positive and negative space to create fantastic scenes and stories. She considers herself a craftsperson and has a deep respect for the paper she transforms. In pursuing her work, she hopes to make visible to others the immense world of possibilities that every piece of paper holds.
September 5th-October 25th, 2014
Opening September 5th, 2014 6-9pm
White’s show is the fourth in the 12 x 14 series at WNYBAC, which features 5 artists over the course of twelve months; Maude will also host a free collaborative event that will give insight into her process on Saturday September 20th, 2014 from 12-5pm.
”When I cut paper, I feel as if I am peeling back the outer, superficial layer of our vision to reveal the secret space beneath. With paper cutting there are so many opportunities to create negative space that tells its own story. Letting the observer become present in the piece allows him or her to look through it. I like the idea of the stark contrast between the black and white paper, and the cut nature of the work makes my art more three-dimensional than paint on canvas. ”

STEP FOUR: Dip a makeup sponge into a drop of Prophecy, a matte-metallic cobalt blue, and randomly dab onto nails.
STEP FIVE: Repeat step four with Spectacle, a matte-metallic raspberry, and Destiny, a shade-shifting sky blue, to create a blended effect.
STEP SIX: Paint White Matter, a paper white, from the side of the nail to the tip with a thin eyeliner brush.
STEP SEVEN: Repeat step six with a second white line, parallel to the first.
STEP EIGHT: Starting from the opposite side of the nail, repeat step seven, intersecting the two lines.
STEP NINE: With an eyeliner brush, apply topcoat over only the three white lines for a subtle sheen.
