Illuminated Book Sculptures Form Highly Detailed Magical Worlds
Beautiful work from artist Su Blackwell, via MyModernMet.
Artist Su Blackwell utilizes beloved novels as an uncommon canvas and builds upward to create bewitching book sculptures. For her latest standout exhibition, she was inspired by how one’s dwelling can act as an imaginative space. “The works include dwellings, such as lighthouses, wood cottages, tree-huts and houses, which appear to be inhabited as often they are lit up, but the scenes I have created are stark and the houses often solitary,” Blackwell says. “I have been inspired by water, by lakes, and the sea. There is a sense that one needs to take a journey to travel to these dwellings.”
