cultur.d: artist kerry miller transforms discared books into works of pure art…

Kerry Miller brings old and discarded books back to life, turning them into unique pieces of 3D artwork. The mixed media and collage artist carefully carves out illustrations found within the book, sometimes using inks and watercolours to enrich and enhance the final piece. As Miller explains on her website:

“My work is a means of distilling the essence of a book, whilst releasing the images and allowing them to reach a new audience. I view it as a collaboration, a partnership with the past, giving new purpose to old volumes that may otherwise never see the light of day or simply end up in recycling. As technology threatens to replace the printed word, there has never been a better time to reimagine the book.”

 

Miller’s works are available for purchase through Lawrence Cantor Fine Art. You can also find her latest pieces on her official website. You can find all of her upcoming exhibitions for 2014 here.
