SALOMON ARTS GALLERY is proud to present Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s exhibition
“CUT-WORK 2010 “.
The first in the series “NATURE AS ARTCHITECT” was initiated by cutting separate
layers of paper using a free-hand scalpel cutting technique creating a multi - layered
outcome capturing light and ever changing shadows. Using only a steady hand and clear
mind with the cutting blade of a surgical scalpel Elizabeth achieves the purity of elegant
This peaceful backdrop cut entirely in white paper inspired her to push further into the
human psyche, to examine the act of destruction. Taking a 12-gauge shotgun she
spontaneously blasted select pieces of her work to elevate the experience to an emotional
crescendo. This body of work was shown as the second installment, “CUT-WORK”.
The evolution progresses in “CUT-WORK 2010”, encapsulating the whole emotional and
visual experience. With color and increased scale added to the process. Elizabeth continues
her study and examines the paradoxes and duality found in the human condition.
