40+ Inspiring Book & paper Sculptures

EvAn D الثلاثاء، 20 نوفمبر، 2012

The book serves as a tool to record historical events that transcend through the ages, passing down knowledge from generation to generation, spanning scientific studies to artistic fields. Today, it is more than just a recording tool, as creative artists start transforming them into genuine and remarkable art forms, generally named Book Sculptures.

Obsessed by the beauty in them and the effort it took to create these beautifully detailed sculptures, we want to take the chance to showcase to you 44 ingenious book sculptures, each carefully crafted by passionate sculptors. What you will see will not be cutouts from books, most of the sculptures are still in the book!
Meanwhile, if you have a passion for the paper art as well, we actually got them covered for you!
A Fun Time With Knowledge. This book sculpture features very detailed skeleton sculptures and old school music player, but what made this sculpture really special is the fact that nobody knows who created it – the artwork was delivered to a library or certain event secretly.

Plant of Appreciation. Another secretly delivered book sculpture with aggressive details. Next to the tree sits a paper egg lined with gold and quoted parts from the poem “A Trace of Wings” by Edwin Morgan. (Image Source: chrisdonia)

Teabreak. A sculpture with beauty and elegance crafted in. It was found at the Edinburgh International Book Festival with the tag, reading “To @edbookfest ‘A gift’ This is for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas… & festivals. XX” Really mysterious, huh? (Image Source: chrisdonia)

Dairy Nets & Soda. You can’t deny that this sculpture is epic. Brian Dettmer takes a thick book and transformed it into an extremely impressive book sculpture, and what’s unbelievable is, he didn’t add anything extra to form the sculpture! (Image Source: Brian Dettmer)

Mound 2. By just removing what was there in the first place, a boring, abandoned book can even be turned into something fantastic and remarkable. Hat tip to the creator. (Image Source: Brian Dettmer)

Tab. Brian Dettmer is not only good at sculpting one book, as this sculpture composed by several books will prove to you. (Image Source: Brian Dettmer)

The Household Physicians. As the name of the book implies, all the colorful anatomy images came from the book itself – the sculptor just removed certain parts of the book to reveal the gems inside. Genius. (Image Source: Brian Dettmer)

Anthologia. Doubtless to say, Jacqueline Rush Lee’s book sculptures are one of the most unique in the industry, and a lot of hard work was put in to make them. For this one, it was hand-painted, sanded, inked, and completed with bookmarks and archival glue. (Image Source: Jacqueline Rush Lee)

Sculpture \ Sandy Skoglund

EvAn D الخميس، 25 أكتوبر، 2012


Sandy Skoglund

Sandy Skoglund  controls every detail in her photographs, going one step beyond the tradition of studio photography, she not only directs the actor’s placement and gestures, she also designs and fabricates many of the objects included in the tableaux.
Sandy Skoglund (born September 11, 1946) is an American photographer and installation artist.
Skoglund creates surrealist images by building elaborate sets or tableaux, furnishing them with carefully purchased and trained small children and other objects, a process of which takes her months to complete. Finally, she photographs the set, complete with actors.
The works are characterized by an overwhelming amount of one object and either bright, contrasting colors or a monochromatic color scheme.

Skoglund studied both art history and studio art at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, graduating in 1968.
In 1967, she studied art history at the Sorbonne and Ecole du Louvre in Paris, France.
After graduating from Smith College, she went to graduate school at the University of Iowa in 1969, where she studied film-making, multimedia art, and printmaking.
In 1971, she earned her Master of Arts and in 1972 a Master of Fine Arts in painting.
In 1972, Skoglund began working as a conceptual artist in New York. She became interested in teaching herself photography to document her artistic endeavors, experimenting with themes of repetition. In 1978, she had produced a series of repetitious food item still life images.

One of her most-known works, entitled Radioactive Cats, features green-painted clay cats running amok in a gray kitchen.
An older man sits in a chair with his back facing the camera while his elderly wife looks into a refrigerator that is the same color as the walls.
Another image, Fox Games has a similar feel to Radioactive Cats and is also widely recognized.
A third and final oft-recognized piece by her features numerous fish hovering above people in bed late at night and is called Revenge of the Goldfish.
The piece was used as cover art for the In-spiral Carpets album of the same name.

“I think I am most fond of the unseen part. I mean that the various cultural experiences that I go through, and the behavioral aspects of getting the work done, are just as important as the installation and the photograph.”

Skoglund was an art professor at the University of Hartford between 1973 and 1976. She is currently teaching photography and art installation/multimedia at Rutgers University in New Jersey.
Skoglund has recently completed a series titled “True Fiction Two”. This recent project is similar to the “True Fiction” series that she began in 1986. This series was not completed due to the discontinuation of materials that Skoglund was using. Kodak canceled the production of the dye that Skoglund was using for her prints. Each image in “True Fiction Two” has been meticulously crafted to assimilate the visual and photographic possibilities now available in digital processes.
Her works are held in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Contemporary Photography, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Dayton Art Institute.
