Papered was an an installation of work at York College Gallery by Sarah Sheard, Darren Nisbet, John Brown and Liam Walker. These 4 artists use paper as an integral part of their work. This includes: constructing unexpected ideas by doodling on receipts, newspapers, envelopes, cardboard boxes and bus tickets; using the cut and stick-on ability of paper to build new things; buying a block of index cards and filling them with images, then buying another one and filling that with images; sticking paper on a wall then sticking other bits over it; making drawings that are mistakes but not worrying about it. The availability and immediacy of paper allows them a way to vent a wide range of ideas quickly. The results can end up in a gallery or in the bin.
