The Intricate and Beautiful Paper Cutting Art of Maude White

Maude White is a paper cutting artist living in Buffalo, NY. She loves the great strength, yet delicacy of paper. Her work is done on the macro as well as the micro level. Every cut is exact and meaningful. She enjoys playing with positive and negative space to create fantastic scenes and stories. She considers herself a craftsperson and has a deep respect for the paper she transforms. In pursuing her work, she hopes to make visible to others the immense world of possibilities that every piece of paper holds.

Maude White: Birds I’ve Been

September 5th-October 25th, 2014
Opening September 5th, 2014 6-9pm

White’s show is the fourth in the 12 x 14 series at WNYBAC, which features 5 artists over the course of twelve months; Maude will also host a free collaborative event that will give insight into her process on Saturday September 20th, 2014 from 12-5pm.

”When I cut paper, I feel as if I am peeling back the outer, superficial layer of our vision to reveal the secret space beneath. With paper cutting there are so many opportunities to create negative space that tells its own story. Letting the observer become present in the piece allows him or her to look through it. I like the idea of the stark contrast between the black and white paper, and the cut nature of the work makes my art more three-dimensional than paint on canvas. ”

What is a cup?

Webster informs me that a cup is a small, bowl-shaped container for drinking, typically having a handle… but I believe that it is more than that one demintional answer. The word “cups” originated from the Latin word “cuppa” meaning the upper part of the head. It also gained its roots from the Germans and Celts as a drinking ritual to honor the dead, otherwise known as a ”skullcap”. The greater message from the form of a cup is the since of camaraderie, the act of sharing one’s drink. Although it has change over the years. For instance when people make a toast, an audible clinking of drinks, or communion in church it represents unity among those involved. What does a cup mean to you? 

If you have any ideas, comments, or thoughts please don’t be shy to respond. :)

If you could watch everything that happened in your life until now, would you enjoy it?

That proves you are unusual, and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.

Spikes placed on the ground in popular vagrant sleeping areas used as “homeless deterrents” .. The latest in Defensive Urban Architecture ..

“The wealthy, people in positions of power don’t pay good good money to have their postcard illusions of reality spoiled by the unpleasantness of reality itself. There’s a certain conceit in the minds of the wealthy and powerful that says “I live in this sphere of existence, you live in that one, and never the twain shall meet. What happens to you does not affect me”
The sense of entitlement some human being feel over other human beings is baffling … 

I’m Embarrassed to be human .

I went back to the store
Where I dreamed of the future the two of us could share
Played house in the pretend bedroom and bath

I went back to the store
Where I now feel uninspired without your breath of fresh air
Played alone in the empty rooms reminisced about an old path

I went back to the store
Where you caught my heart in a snare
Played with my emotions and I feel the vengeful wrath

I went back to the store
Where I pictured you next to me, although you weren’t really there
Played the fool because I thought it wasn’t make pretend.

I went back to the store
Where my memory of you had faded
Played a new dream without you, but I was lonely for a friend
