I always get such a thrill from discovering new book artists, so I was really happy that Flavorwire posted today about a piece of Australian artist Kylie Stillman‘s work. Represented by Utopia Art Sydney, Kylie makes beautiful book carvings, often with nature themes.
“Pandora Opens Box” is piece by Su Blackwell. From Blackwell’s website, here is her artist statement:
“Paper has been used for communication since its invention; either between humans or in an attempt to communicate with the spirit world. I employ this delicate, accessible medium and use irreversible, destructive processes to reflect on the precariousness of the world we inhabit and the fragility of our life, dreams and ambitions.
It is the delicacy, the slight feeling of claustrophobia, as if these characters, the landscape have been trapped inside the book all this time and are now suddenly released. A number of the compositions have an urgency about them, the choices made for the cut-out people from the illustrations seem to lean towards people on their way somewhere, about to discover something, or perhaps escaping from something. And the landscapes speak of a bleak mystery, a rising, an awareness of the air.”
Beautiful book sculptures from Jacqueline Rush Lee:
