Books Are Made For Art

"It is amazing what mediums are used these days by artists to create pieces of art. Su Blackwell has created these stunning sculptures by cutting out pieces from books and using the cut outs to create a masterpiece. This is what Su Blackwell has to say about her book cut sculptures;

These works can be seen as metaphors for language. Like language, that is ephemeral and powerful. While I’m dealing with dark subject matter, such as loss, loneliness and fragility, I am dealing with it in a light manner."

You can view all the book cut sculptures at Su Blackwell’s website.
