How complex is the core of life, how complex its representation? In her artistic paper works llse Pierard (Vilvoorde, 1976) focusses on the abstracted form of a cell, the basic and the smallest unit of life. Her intriguing and fragile paper works in their reduced oval shape are an ode to the cell.

Description

The artist’s concern is to represent the timeless aesthetic harmony and beauty of an existential truth with a simple yet intense distillate of her own artistic material and language. In her working process she explores a wide range of everyday handicraft paper and wrapping material: transparent paper, silk paper as well as craft paper, metal foil or cellophane sheet. Accepting wear marks alongside the edges and corners – traces of use and handling – the artist emphasizes both their fragility and power hidden within.
