Chris Natrop | Biography

Natrop is a Los Angeles-based artist who works with cut-paper to make objects and installation works. The Lenox 100 paper that Natrop uses in his work has the 100% rag fibre content of fine art and printmaking papers. Natrop takes a utility knife to rolls of Lenox 100 to create his free-hand, negative space drawings. For Natrop, paper as a medium acts as restraint, control or partner in his cut-out sprees; providing an apt structure for his drawings' crystalline logic of bubble- orbs, butterflies, hanging gardens, drips, spiders and ants.

His paper cut installations have recently been shown in the Sonoma County Museum, the Skestos Gabriele Gallery in Chicago, and at the Walkers' Point Center for the Arts in Milwaukee.
