This inspiring exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery shows work by artists connecting with paper – folded, cut, manipulated – transformed into miniature worlds, fairy tale stories and silhouettes narrating social history in an unexpected way.

Abigail Reynolds uses vintage magazines. The above work uses two different editions, one post war showing the dramatic changes in the landscapes around London, using both editions she juxtaposes copies of old & new.

Beatrice Coron

Beatrice Coron, I came across her work recently at the Visionary Museum in Baltimore, where she had created huge circular pieces in a similar vain.

Kara Walker’s silhouettes  are inspired by the  pre-Civil War  period of  the American South and re-present African American history.  The narratives are provocative, violent, showing stereotypes and gender inequalities.
