Cut-out images

Paper cuts have been rediscovered and reinterpreted by contemporary artists in recent years as a form and medium. Today artists are not just using scissors for their paper cuts but also scalpels and extremely fine cutters. They are also creating three-dimensional images. In an exhibition entitled “Papiers découpés. Scherenschnitte. Silhouette. Paper Cuts” at the Château de Prangins, near Nyon on Lake Geneva, over a hundred “modern” works of art are on display alongside a dozen historical paper cuts.
