Description

The Larchmont Public Library’s Oresman Gallery presents “PAPER ART 2019”, an exhibit of unique paper art by Sine Hjort. The exhibit will open in the Oresman Gallery on Friday, January 3, and will remain on display through Thursday, January 30. The exhibit is free and open to everyone during normal library hours. In addition to the exhibit, the artist will host a hands-on paper-cutting workshop on Saturday, January 11 from 2:00 to 4:00pm. The workshop is free and everyone is invited to participate.

 

Sine Hjort grew up in Denmark and went to a private school that focused on creativity. Educated at the Copenhagen Art and Danish Design schools, she came to New York in 1986 and became the creative force behind an all women’s music project, a band called Maria Excommunikata. She composed, recorded and performed with many talented and wonderful artists. The band toured the United States with Tom Tom Club and Debbie Harry and she had a cameo appearance in The Ramones music video “The Pet Sematary”. While performing she supported herself by doing piecework for Soho artist James Rizzi, cutting paper and assembling his art works for a period of seven years.

 

“I have had success sharing my work at locations where people sit down for a while so they have time to look at my art work”, said Sine. “The NY craft beer scene has been a wonderful connection for my work and I am thrilled to license my art to the delicious craft beer label called "Nap Time Liquid Creation”, based in Blauvelt NY. My works also decorate the tasting room at the brewery”.

 

Sine Hjort exhibits in both the U.S. and in Denmark, where she is a member of Næstved Grafik Værksted and attends their workshops. She has works permanently on display at the Flat Iron Gallery in Peekskill. NY. She teaches workshops throughout Westchester County; mostly at public libraries and private art schools. Working for the Croton Academy of Arts she teaches a paper-cutting workshop at a weekly after- school program at Croton Elementary School.

 

Sine Hjort lives in Croton-On-Hudson (surrounded by tall trees and wild animals.)
