Cafe Botanique, November 6th: Cut Stories with Beatrice Coron

Cut Stories - Discover Paper Cutting
Beatricé Coron, Paper Artist, NYC, NY

Stories give meaning to everything, from mythical legends to journalistic reports, from marketing strategies to political ideologies. The story is always for free; it's the bait, the cure and the hope. For the last 15 years, Beatricé Coron has been exploring visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. Collecting memories from individuals and communities, she stages narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies.

Beatricé Coron has lived in France (her native country), Egypt and Mexico for one year each and China for two years. She moved to New York in 1985 where she reinvented herself as an artist. Coron's oeuvre includes illustration, book arts, fine art and public art. She cuts her characteristic silhouette designs in paper and Tyvek. She also creates works in stone, glass, metal, rubber, stained glass and digital media.

Her work has been purchased by major museum collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum, The Walker Art Center and The Getty. Her public art can be seen in subways, airport and sports facilities, among others.
