FEATURED ARTIST ANGIE

FEATURED ARTIST ANGIE PICKMAN Angie Pickman, from Lawrence, KS, is a nationally-recognized, cut-paper artist who combines the art of traditional paper cutting with collage to create intricately detailed works of art and animations. She received her master’s degree from Tisch School of the ong>Artong>s at New York University, where she first learned of the art of silhouette animation under artist Lotte Reiniger (1899 – 1981). Her love of nature and the tranquility of the rural terrain, as well as Reiniger’s style and technique, inspired Pickman to set off on the artistic path that she continues today. She exhibits at galleries and art fairs nationally, does illustration, animation and design work, conducts public presentations on her art, and teaches various art classes and workshops. In the artist’s words: “I was moved to learn the art of paper cutting in 2003 after seeing The Adventures of Prince Achmed – a cut paper stop-motion silhouette animation from 1926 by Lotte Reiniger. I had always wanted to be ‘an artist’ – I knew from a very young age that it was my life calling, but it took me a long time to figure out in which medium this would manifest itself. The traditional forms taught in school never felt quite right, but when I saw Lotte’s work, something clicked. I picked up my craft knife and black paper and never looked back.” “My life philosophy revolves around achieving simplicity, winnowing away at all the things that are not needed so that the individual can be reduced to the rawest, purest being possible. I think at this level, one is more readily able to truly observe and take in the natural beauty that exists around us. Cutting paper is metaphorical for this – the cutting away of all that is unnecessary to reveal the subject in a simple, bold form.” BOOTH 875 4 • ART FAIR ON THE SQUARE 2015 FRANK STRUNK METAL-WORKS JOACHIM KNILL PAINTING ANDREW MOSEDALE DIGITAL ART RYAN MYERS CERAMICS DAVID BARKBY SCULPTURE AND 3-D MIXED MEDIA
