The Louise and Bernard Palitz Gallery

Boris Margo: The Cellocut and Use of Plastics

September 21 through November 5, 2021

This exhibition highlights original prints by American artist Boris Margo. From early on, Margo had an innate impulse to recycle various materials to create artworks. The result of this curiosity was the invention of the cellocut process, a versatile medium that permits considerable freedom in one’s use of color and forms in their creations. A difficult medium to handle convincingly, this technique has proven to be challenging for many, resulting in only a few masters of the cellocut, including Margo and his wife, artist Jan Gelb. Curated by Emma Geiler, G’18
