Among all of the artists we have in the space currently for Shadow and Light, Jaq Belcher is the only one whom we officially represent. Her work, much like her colleague Reni Gower, is focused around the mediative state driven by the act of working with paper in this reductive and repetitive way. To add to this process, Jaq also numbers each and every cut she makes as she cuts them, so that the finished product includes the markers of time within it’s folds. This aspect of her work fits in to her exploration of meditative conscious states. Read more about her on our artist page, linked above. And watch this short clip where Jaq gives a brief tour of her studio and talks about her process.
