Sue Blackwell creates intricate paper sculptures from the pages of books.
Sue Blackwell creates enchanting pieces useing only a single book for each piece, using both text and imagery. The meticulous effort gone into each piece is something to be admired.
“I often work within the realm of fairy-tales and folk-lore. I began making a series of book-sculpture, cutting-out images from old books to create three-dimensional diorama’s, and displaying them inside wooden boxes”.
“For the cut-out illustrations, I tend to lean towards young-girl characters, placing them in haunting, fragile settings, expressing the vulnerability of childhood, while also conveying a sense of childhood anxiety and wonder. There is a quiet melancholy in the work, depicted in the material used, and choice of subtle colour.”
