Helen Musselwhite - Brighton Open House

Brighton Artists Open Houses 2012 closes today, so if you can make a dash for 14 Southdown Avenue, BN1 6EG this afternoon, where they have a collection of Helen Musselwhite’s paper cuts, we'd recommend that you do! 

Helen explores wildlife and the detail and skill involved in her work is incredible. Each piece combines the hand cutting, folding and scoring of a wide range of papers and card that are further worked on to create patterned and textured surfaces. The scenes are then set in box frames which are often complex and consist of many layers. This process means that each item of work is truly individual with no two pieces the same. Influenced by the natural world each piece is manipulated to become an intriguing place, a glimpse into another world of fiction and fairytale.
