The Art of Su Blackwell
Do you have shelves full of dusty old books? Me too, but I’m guessing that British artist Su Blackwell does not have that problem! Instead of letting the dust settle, she skillfully snips and cuts until the pages of those old bird watching journals, and forgotten fairytales become stunningly delicate, sculptural pieces of art. Yes, I would love to have any of these books on my bedside table… and I’d promise to keep them dust-free!
“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
