Linden New Art proudly presents the new exhibition Linden Projects: Paper, which opened on May 8th 2015. Through the works of four solo artists, the exhibition will explore one of the oldest of art mediums, paper, and how contemporary artists use it today.

Melbourne artist Peta Clancy presents the series Puncture, comprising four large-scale, intimate self-portraits that explore the transformative, fragile and resilient qualities of paper. Using a fine needle, the artist carefully applies thousands of tiny pinpricks through the surface of photographic paper.

Sydney-based, Indian-born artist Gunjan Aylawadi presents a floor-based installation resembling the pattern of intricate mosaic tiles, inspired by her Hindu background. The former computer science engineer says each one of her incredibly intricate pieces takes “from a couple of days to weeks and months” to create.

Melburnian Emma Van Leest is a paper-cutting artist who’s work explores the repercussions of colonialism and exploration and the notion of the souvenir during this period. Trousseau is a paper-cut veil and headpiece created in remembrance of Judick Bastiaenz, one of the survivors of the infamous Batavia incident, a shipwreck and mutiny off the coast of Geraldton, WA in 1629.

Becc Ország, an emerging contemporary artist living in Melbourne, works primarily in the medium of drawing. Her drawings are inspired by a deep fascination with “the human desire for a higher place, beyond our earthly world, such 
as heaven or a utopia”. Her charcoal drawings are surrealist with an old world charm.

The exhibition runs in conjunction with sister exhibition Linden Projects: Atmosphere.
