JOE FAFARD: Out-cuts/Cut-outs
December 12, 2012 - January 26, 2013
The work in this exhibition illustrates just one of the unique aspects of artist Joe Fafard’s creative process - the metamorphosis of an idea. Out-cuts/Cut-outs includes a series of precise laser-cut sculptures for which Fafard is very well known. These works are essentially steel drawings - carefully and exactly rendered. Also included in the show are a number of “sculptural collages” and embossed prints created from the out-cuts and by-products of the laser-cut process. Here we see that the artist’s initial idea has grown from a drawing to a laser-cut sculpture, to a steel collage, or an embossing, or a print. One piece leads organically into the next and each step takes the artist and the work in a new direction.
