Manchester Art Gallery is currently playing host to the paper art exhibition The First Cut. Partial to a nice piece of paper/book art I bobbed along to find out what all the fuss is about, suffice to say I wasn't left disappointed. From the intricate to the ginormous this exhibition has it all; trees (that you can actually walk through!), galaxies, gardens, birds, towns, even a gun; and all in PAPER! It's amazing what you can achieve with a humble piece of A4, I'll never look at printer paper the same!
It's on until Sunday 27 January 2013 and well worth a visit. No excuses, it's free!
Work from top: Manabu Hangai, Rob Ryan, Noriko Ambe, Claire Brewster, James Aldridge, Nicola Dale, Andrea Mastrovito, Sarah Bridgland.
