> DESCRIPTION

 Using saws, lasers, Xacto knives and scissors, the twelve exhibiting artists in Under the Knife employ a variety of media to sculpt, paint, and draw with cut lines and forms. What emerges are graphically complex works that examine process, materiality, layering, elimination, and the relationship between positive and negative space.

Through their investigations into process and materials, the artists in this exhibition draw contemporary conclusions from early modernist practices and traditional craft and folk-art techniques. In allowing these contradictory movements to coalesce harmoniously, the artists create bold new work that rejects preconceived notions of fine art and allows for the ambiguity and freedom of what can be achieved when the paintbrush, pencil and chisel are replaced with the knife.
