Stunning Book Sculptures by Su Blackwell

Book Sculptures by Su Blackwell

It never ceases to amaze us what extremely gifted people can do with paper.  London-based artist Su Blackwell works predominantly within the realm of paper.  She began making exquisite book sculptures since 2005 by cutting out images from old books to create hauntingly beautiful 3D paper sculptures.

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. ~ Su Blackwell
