A Fresh Cut: New Papercut Silhouettes
by Bennett Konesni
Opening reception Friday March 7, 4-6pm
A Solid Team
Using an x-acto knive, Bennett cuts scenes of his life as a farmer and musician from a single sheet of black paper. It is an old technique that people have employed for centuries to make family silhouettes for hanging over the mantle, but Bennett takes it a step further to create intricate visions in black and white. This art hunts for the beauty to be found in everyday moments, challenging the viewer to change their perspective and see it themselves.
