Slash: Paper under the Knife

I know this isn’t photography per se but I just love the way artists have used paper as the medium for their art.

Slash: Paper Under the Knife takes the pulse of the international art world’s renewed interest in paper as a creative medium and source of artistic inspiration, examining the remarkably diverse use of paper in a range of art forms.

This exhibition was recently shown at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.  The following images are those that I found particularly interesting as sources of inspiration.
