Jaq Belcher is an Australian-born contemporary artist who lives and works in Harlem, New York. Belcher’s elegant cut paper works explore consciousness, visual perception, and states of being. By cutting, she utilizes a reductive and repetitive process that fosters and requires stillness. She sees the white expanse of a sheet of paper as a beautiful void and cutting as a way of subtracting from the void in order to produce shapes, images, and ideas. The work is meditative and serene. It is a recording of time and the seeds of potential.
