      Japanese art of paper cutting - a solo exhibition by KROUD

      Jadite Galleries is pleased to present Contemporary Evolution Theory, a solo exhibition by KROUD on view from November 1 through November 5 at Jadite Galleries, 413 West 50th Street, New York City, with an opening reception for the artist on Thursday, November 3, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

      KROUD’s third solo exhibition in New York will showcase his most recent paper-cutting works from Modern Theory of Evolution, in which he intentionally layers black and white papers to depict insects and animals to underline the coexistence of living organisms and human-made machines. The fusion of the inorganic and the organic reveals the fragility and beauty of the modern world we live in, as in Darwin’s words when he referred to his work: “We are in a new phase of evolution mediated by machines.”

      KROUD’s work is known for its rigorous and meticulous paper cutting, which is referred as Kirie, the Japanese art of paper cutting. From a distance, his works appear to be photorealistic paintings with black inks, but they are instead created with layers of black and white papers that he painstakingly cuts. “To cut is to create space,” KROUD says. “Space is said to be a continuum of expanse – an entity that provides places for all material substance to exist concurrently. I aim to pursue ways of making ‘space’ visible through the art of paper cutouts.”
