“Paper is a medium of contradictions: It appears to be very fragile, yet it can be very strong and tenacious,” says Cecily Cullen, creative director at the Center for Visual Art, where the new exhibition Paper Work will open tonight.
Often viewed as a basic and mundane material, paper becomes a big presence here through singular, bold pieces. Artist Mia Pearlman uses paper to re-create forces of nature, cutting, folding and molding it to resemble clouds. Liz Miller’s site-specific installation takes forms from different movements in art history and transforms them into fantastic environments through paper. Each artist’s interpretation shows a completely different side of the simple medium.
Paper Work opens with a reception at 6 p.m. at the CVA, 965 Santa Fe Drive; the show runs through August 2. For more information on the exhibition and participating artists, visit msudenver.edu/cva.
Thu., June 19, 5:30 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 19. Continues through Aug. 2, 2014
