Art student Amanda Blum’s Senior Honors Art Exhibition, “Cut, Crinkle, Crumple” will be showing in the Helene Center Critique Space from March 31st to April 11th.
“Cut, Crinkle, Crumple” is a show focusing on something so ubiquitous that few of us consciously notice it: paper.
Paper is, largely, a means to an end. We use it to print assignments, we use it to take notes, and we use it to blow our noses. In her show’s Artist Statement, however, Blum “decided to look into the history of paper” for inspiration, noticing its various uses over time. Rather than let paper fall into the backdrop of her show, Blum’s interaction with paper makes up the show’s theme.
Even if you don’t notice it very often now, Blum’s “Cut, Crinkle, Crumple” challenges you to see paper as a tool and a means of expression.
The reception for the show will be on April 5th, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, immediately followed by an artist talk by Blum.
