Admiring 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…
â€œPaper 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.â€
â€œI 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.â€
