PaperCuts







I took the drawings of the Clown and developed them further in the Enid Blyton book, then after researching Swoon and Amie Dicke I started to produce papercuts, it all hinged on the idea of the destruction of childhood innocence, the Enid Blyton books represented childhood and the cutting to produce waves the destruction, but this was all too subtle and they ended up looking pretty rather than menacing, and I was finding it increasing difficult to get my message across with the papercuts so I eventually concentrated on painting, and the wheatpasting evolved from the ashes of the papercuts...
