SUSAN CUTTS arbs | Paper Sculpture


Paper is said to have a memory, the creases, wrinkles and folds hold words unspoken or forgotten.  In ‘who knows where the time goes’ the absence of the dancer gives the paper the power to evoke physical and emotional memories. Susan studied Constructed Textiles at the London College of Furniture Parts I & II City & Guilds. Further she studied Theatrical Corsetry London College of Fashion, College Diploma.

Susan says: “The language of clothing – contemporary and historical – intrigues me.  I choose through my work to explore the relevance of dress to identity and the interaction between wearer and observer.” She further adds: “We shape the clothes we wear, making them as individual as a thumbprint and like a thumbprint they can expose and betray”.

“I use my own handmade paper working from the raw fibre using traditional European equipment and techniques. The process of papermaking is vitally important to my work. The complex structure of the fibres enables me to create sculptural pieces without the use of glue, stitching or armatures. I use the image of ‘dress’ frequently in my work, its perception both historical and contemporary intrigue me.”
