About Matt


For me, making cut paper art is purely a voyage of discovery. Each time I sit in front of a blank piece of white paper I direct the razor’s edge as it excises my delight, anguish,longing and humor; I reach for meaning, clarity or closure. My only purpose is to enjoy the process – and I do, wholeheartedly.

In a world where the literal dominates, my process is one of developing relationships between what I remove and what is left behind. The act of cutting paper is akin to how I live my life – there is no eraser, no second chance, only indelible choices. Each day, a new page. And most importantly, there is no sketch or plan. The result often surprises me; from that I derive much joy.

Great work. Accessible, free feeling style. The blank slate and permanence of each piece is particularly intriguing. Most of all I like that Matt obtains joy and surprise not only in the finished result but the "only purpose is to enjoy the process-." Knowing that makes me enjoy the work more and ask questions that I might not have asked myself about his art.

That's sweet. Do you pre-plan this out before you start cutting?
