Fairy Book Tales – Book Sculptures by Su Blackwell

I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.

Su Blackwell is a UK based artist who loves working with paper. She hunts around second-hand bookshops for her raw materials. Su actually reads the book first once or twice before proceeding with the cutting, folding, and shaping. Her work tends to lean towards the realm of fairy tale and folk lore featuring young girls in haunting, fragile settings. Su feels that this expresses the vulnerability of childhood while conveying a sense of childish wonder.
