Su Blackwell

SuBlackwellAdmiring the book sculptures created by UK artist, Su Blackwell. She works primarily with paper transforming them into these incredible three-dimensional forms. She says of her work…

“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.”

“I always read the book first, at least once or twice, and then I begin to create the work, cutting out, adding details. The detail is what brings it all together, the magic element. It is a tediously slow process.”
