Artist Spotlight: Thomas Witte

A selection of cut paper works by New Jersey-based artist Thomas Witte. It’s cool to see his work in full colour for a change. Witte has collected thousands of 35mm slide photographs which he uses as the starting point for his works. Using a Japanese scalpel as his primary tool, he cuts up tissue paper that he’s washed with watercolors, building up layers and textures. The results of this slow and meticulous process are works that are the complete opposite of the snapshots they’re based on.

These works were included in his recent solo exhibition, “Centerpiece”, at Davidson Gallery. Have a look at more below.
