These book sculptures or “book carvings” were created by Canadan creative, Guy Laramee. After carving landscapes and structures into old books, Guy then paints them in varied colours. He explains further: “My work, in 3D as well as in painting, originates from the very idea that ultimate knowledge could very well be an erosion instead of an accumulation. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening.”
I think these are great. It never ceases to amaze me at the amount of creative individuals who create unique works of sculpture art. Check out the rest…
