IAPMA, the International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists is the world leading organisation for paper artists and they are proud to present their exhibition:
The Luminous Within
Platform 72 Gallery, 62 Atchison Street, St Leonards
August 6 – 19
10am – 4pm
Beginning from the idea of a pearl being something small, precious, luminous and rare “The Luminous Within” is an exhibition of small-scale, self-contained paper artworks set within a sculptural or book-like shell. Whilst the exterior shell of a pearl may appear rough and coarse, the pearl within is a luminous hidden treasure.
Paper has many “luminous” qualities which the member artists highlight. Paper transmits light and can be radiant, dazzling, celestial – it can illuminate deeper truths, be a guiding light, or a source of inspiration. This exhibition surveys a variety of techniques and a multiplicity of forms within the constraint of size. From the artist book to paper sculptures and vessels, from multi-layered cut paper objects to elements embedded directly into handmade paper, these artists demonstrate how form, content and medium coalesce into a unified expression of inspiration, subtle beauty and radiance.
