Welcome – explore cut-paper painting
Fiona Scott-Wilson creates unique cut-paper paintings using coloured papers.
“A few years ago I decided to experiment with paper as a dry medium and create a new way of expressing myself. I swopped my paints for multi-coloured papers and my brushes with a scalpel. In the beginning my work was very simple graphic images and designs inspired by my favourite artist Matisse. Over time my style of work has continued to evolve and I use paper more like brush strokes in paint. I try and capture detail and find accurate paper colours to create more complex and intricate “paintings” that are inspired by my love of nature, the living world, and my passion for design, notably William Morris and The Arts and Craft Movement, Japanese woodblocks, and oriental design.” – FSW
From the artist
“Cutting into colour reminds me of the sculptor’s direct carving.”
– Henri Matisse
“Colour was not given to us in order that we imitate nature, it was given to us so that we can express our emotions.”
– Henri Matisse
“Matisse would have been proud of you for using the cut out coloured paper technique. Good composition, imaginative, lovely.”
