Art of Cutting
Trimming, piercing, slicing, snipping: just a few of the many words that relate to the idea of cutting. In this volume Jean-Charles Trebbi explores the traditional techniques of paper cutting, before examining current manifestations of this art form, including the contemporary materials and technologies it uses and the types of artistic expression it offers. The Art of Cutting is a collection of artworks that have been created using a variety of cutting techniques. The author explores traditional techniques that are still very much alive worldwide, and he analyses the current aspects of the art of cutting, in which different materials and technologies lead to new forms of artistic expression. This book presents a selection of artists who revisit and work with traditional techniques, as well as those who adopt contemporary approaches. From paper to ceramics, food design and architecture, The Art of Cutting offers a stunning and diverse universe that is waiting to be discovered. AUTHOR: Born in Paris, Charles Trebbi is an urban architect, designer, artist and writer. A Renaissance man who specialises in the infinite possibilities of folding, cutting and assembling using paper, cardboard, textiles and even wood and metal, he creates his own art books, which are often inspired often by urban spaces and architecture, and produces completely original structures with pop-up and cutting techniques.
