History of the Cut-Out Technique
LUMAS Cut-Outs are contemporary and experimental but also firmly anchored in Art History. They represent a leap forward from Henri Matisse’s (1869-1954) cut paper works. In his late creative phase, Matisse made masterpieces using scissors and paper, making him ahead of his time. The artists in our collection bring this tradition into the 21st century, literally giving new shape to expressive wall art.
