I’ve always been a huge fan of Matisse’s cut out work, i think that’s where my interest in collage originally stemmed from. His use of colour, and layering in his pieces is just what i would describe as ‘spot on’. I remembered doing a project based around these works during my gcse art days. I was always fascinated by the simplicity of the work. Although i’ve not had the chance yet, during the summer i’m hoping i can get to London and visit the current exhibitions of his cutouts at the Tate gallery. When i found out this exhibition was happening, i’m not going to lie i was mighty excited and it’s on my list of things to see over the summer break!
