Artist Opening Reception: Paper Cuts by Candice Oyer
Candice Oyer has developed her own techniques including building low-relief paper sculptures and weaving together paper strips of images like the warp and weft of fabric. Candice is a Somerville resident and Vernon Street Studios artist and designer. In her world, purchase dreams, memories and life experiences shape a visual language. She builds her low-relief, three-dimensional interpretation of these experiences through simplified shapes and color using hand-cut paper, hand-woven paper and painting.Candice thinks of her work as a harmonious mixture of her background in graphic design and fashion design, bringing together graphic elements, weaving techniques and construction. Paper, like fabric, can be transformed and manipulated to tell a story.
