Paper cutting is at the core of Charlotte McGowan-Griffin’s work, a process which relies on anticipation and intuition, and a dynamic relationship with the material. A cut is an irreversible act, a ritual, the repeated enactment of which gradually reduces the physical weight of the paper and turns it into a mysterious three-dimensional space situated between the image and a supra-physical distance which surpasses the usual limits of paper’s capacity for graphic expression. Through her subtractive process and monochromatic approach, McGowan-Griffin empowers the ordinarily passive paper with a subtle intensity.
