When we were children, before people taugt us how to look at the world,
we saw people and things as they were, naked, and, full of curiosity, with a power we didn’t even realize we had, we could create the future freely.
I was stunned when I saw a video in which Henri Matisse was creating collages in his atelier.
He had quit painting, and at the age of 78, reached out to a new form of expression - cutting things out. “CUT-OUT” was inspired by Henri’s atelier - liberated, vulnerable, welcoming, and free.
