how it was cut

This = a lil’ bit about how the ‘Cutted’ series came to be,

& how it has evolved since then.

After cutting something out of a white and black paper, I noticed that the residual forms of those papers lay on the floor in such a harmonious composition that I stapled them. It was given, and I simply had to take note of it.

After that, I made it a fun game to intuitively cut colored paper and find original compositions. One evening while sick and healing, I felt particularly inspired. I began cutting away and all these beautiful compositions formed in front of me. I carefully glued the clippings in the way I liked them best. For a while, I forgot about them.

During test shoots of our 1st feature film, we noticed that the set needed abstract art. It was evident that the figurative art on the set was too prominent as a background. But we needed vibrancy, something in the setting that set the tone.

Walker and I discussed turning the sketches I talked about earlier into paintings. Likewise, Walker devised the idea of giving each shape a specific structure or finish, which = a technique he experimented with in his own paintings.

In this way, our painting collabo began and the ‘Cutted Series’ came to be. For the series, we made works painted on paper + works on canvas, in larger formats. Throughout all works, shapes are characterized by unique structures that create harmony.

The 23 works will co-star in our upcoming feature film ‘God In All’. I’m curious how our next series will turn out. U can already view this entire series in our store!
