Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs at Tate Modern

Tate Modern: Exhibition, 17 April–7 September 2014

"Henri Matisse is a giant of modern art. This landmark show explores the final chapter in his career in which he began 'carving into colour' and his series of spectacular cut–outs was born. ...

In his late sixties, when ill health first prevented Matisse from painting, he began to cut into painted paper with scissors to make drafts for a number of commissions. In time, Matisse chose cut–outs over painting: he had invented a new medium. ...

For the first time ever, we are broadcasting live into cinemas around the country with an exclusive film about the exhibition. Matisse Live offers an intimate, behind–the–scenes view of the artist via beautiful footage of the works, interviews with his friends plus rare archive footage of Matisse at work."

Papermation by Jen Stark

"Adding yet another string to Stark's bow are stop motion animations in which paper is further imbued with new significance. Often accompanied by light electronic soundtracks, the looped kaleidoscopic films draw viewers through benign wormholes of living color.

At an exhibition of Jen Stark's one does not so much view work as observe extraordinary behavior in a state of stasis. With surprisingly simple means the artist succeeds in extending our world by venturing a furtive, unspoiled dimension of sentient forms.

Referencing geometry, meteorology and drawing freely from her own inimitable individuality she refines her message with economical yet expounding titles. Often scientifically and biologically dependable they call to mind established truths in nature and fortify our impressions of them with a greater sense of purpose."

(Tom Hollingsworth, May 2008)
